Car Clinic and Safety Fair Prepares Students, Faculty, Staff for Possible Hazards
February 27, 2009
Texas Tech University Parking Services provides the checks and services free during
a Car Clinic and Safety Fair.
Preventive maintenance is an essential step of defensive driving. Texas Tech University
Parking Services provides the checks and services free during a Car Clinic and Safety
Fair Wednesday (March 4).
The free checks will be done by Scott's Complete Car Care Center from 2-5 p.m. in
the Texas Tech C17 parking lot between Texas Tech Parkway and Indiana Avenue.
The Car Care Council (carcare.org) reported that results of vehicle check-ups at community
car care events across the country revealed that 80 percent of vehicles need service
or parts. A survey by "Road and Travel Magazine" shows that college students wished
that they took better care of their cars. University Parking Services and Scott's
Complete Car Care Center will check fluids and belts to ensure that students, faculty
and staff are ready to travel the road before spring break begins.
University Parking Services sponsors the Car Clinic three times a year: before the
Thanksgiving holiday, before spring break and before the start of the fall semester.
Students, faculty and staff can register to win a free parking permit. All participants
will receive a goody bag.
