Texas Tech University Parking Services holds its next Free Car Clinic from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesday (July 18) in the C17 parking lot, located at the intersection of Indiana Avenue and Texas Tech Parkway. University Parking Services welcomes all Texas Tech students, employees and visitors to the event.

The clinic features a free checkup of each vehicle’s fluids, belts and other basics by professional mechanics from Scott’s Complete Car Care. University Parking Services will provide free hot dogs and soft drinks.

Representatives from Saddle-Up Motorcycle Training, Student Health Services, the Texas Tech Federal Credit Union, Help End Auto Theft (HEAT) and Mothers Against Drunk Driving will host informational booths. The Masked Rider and Midnight Matador will appear from 10:15 to 11:15 a.m., and participants can take a Segway for a test drive at no cost.

The Free Car Clinic, originally called the Spring Break Free Car Clinic, began in March 1999 as a Student Health Services program to educate students on enjoying a safe spring break. The event covered not only a vehicle check, but also driving and personal safety. During the past 13 years, University Parking Services began hosting the event, which now occurs three times per year and draws up to 400 attendees.

University Parking Services provides guidance and assistance to the campus community and public on all parking-related needs. For more information on the Free Car Clinic
