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 on 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 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.
