Vehicle inspections offered to holiday travelers

On Dec. 4, University Police and the Department of Parking and Transportation, in partnership with Hartmann’s Towing, will sponsor a free traveler’s vehicle inspection service for students, faculty and staff.

People traveling by car for the holiday break can bring their vehicles to the parking lot outside the police/parking office on the South 40 between noon-3 p.m. for an inspection.

Staff will check tire pressure, fluid levels, wipers, headlights and taillights. Local businesses have donated oil and windshield-washer fluid so that fluids can be topped off.

“Too often we all neglect to check our vehicles before taking off on a trip,” said Don Strom, chief of University Police.

“This is a great, quick and easy opportunity for members of our campus community to get their vehicles inspected and help ensure they have a safe trip over the upcoming holidays.”

The WUPD Bear Patrol will assist with the inspections.
