Police department offers free vehicle inspections

On Saturday, Dec. 8, from noon to 2:30 p.m., the Washington University Police Department and Parking Services, in partnership with Hartmann’s Towing, will once again sponsor a free traveler’s vehicle inspection service to students, faculty and staff.

Persons anticipating traveling by car during the winter break can bring their vehicles to the lower level of Millbrook Garage for a free 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 for topping off these fluids.

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

The WUPD Bear Patrol will assist police and parking staff. For more information, contact Sgt. Mark Glenn in the WUPD Crime Prevention Office at (314) 935-5084 or by email at mark_glenn@wustl.edu.
