Car and Bicycle Clinic Prepares Students, Faculty and Staff for Possible Hazards

Get your car or bicycle checked out before the holidays.

WHAT: Free car and bicycle care clinic offered by Texas Tech University Parking Services

WHEN: 2-5 p.m. Wednesday (Nov. 7)

WHERE: The C-17 parking lot on the west side of Indiana Avenue across from the School of Law Building

EVENT: Scott’s Complete Car Care mechanics will perform a free check of all belts, fluids and tires. Broadway Bikes and Bike Tech experts will do free bike inspections, brake adjustments, lubrication and offer tire sealant for any slow leaks. The Texas Tech Police Department will also be on hand to register bicycles.

Parking services personnel will also hand out free hot dogs and soft drinks. Participants will also be able to register for a free parking permit.

A survey by Road and Travel Magazine at http://www.roadandtravel.com/safetyandsecurity/teensandtots/collegestudentscars.htm shows that shows college students wished they took better care of their cars. During the car clinic experts will check fluids and belts to ensure that students, faculty and staff are ready to travel the roads before the holidays.

University Parking Services sponsors the event three times a year: before the Thanksgiving holiday, before Spring Break and before the start of the fall semester. Community members also are welcome to bring their vehicles in for a free check.
