The summer car clinic offers free automobile checks to students, faculty and staff before fall semester begins.
Preventive maintenance is an essential step of defensive driving. Texas Tech University Parking Services will provide checks and services during a Car Clinic and Safety Fair Wednesday, July 22.
The free checks will be done by Scott's Complete Car Care Clinic from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. in the C17 parking lot between Texas Tech Parkway and Indiana Avenue.
A survey by Road and Travel Magazine shows that college students wished they took better care of their cars. University Parking Services and Scott's Complete Car Care will check fluids and belts to ensure students, faculty and staff are ready to travel the road before the fall semester begins.
Participants have the chance to win a free parking permit, goodie bags and more.
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.
