Free vehicle inspections offered

The Washington University Police Department and Parking Services, in partnership with Hartmann’s Towing, will sponsor a free vehicle inspection service to students, faculty and staff Saturday, Dec. 6.

Due to construction on the South 40, the inspections will be held outside of Alumni House off of Wallace Drive between noon and 3 p.m. Inspection staff will check tire pressure, fluid levels, wipers and head- and taillights.

Local businesses have donated oil, windshield washer fluid and other vehicle fluids to allow WUSTL drivers to top off these fluids before traveling.

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

“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 break,” he said.

The WUPD Bear Patrol will assist the police and parking staff.
