In conjunction with the start of the holiday travel season, Parking Services will hold Operation SafeDrive, an event with free vehicle inspections for all UGA faculty, staff and students Nov. 15 from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. in the Tate Student Center parking lot.
Mechanics from Campus Transit and Five Star Automotive will top off fluids, check belts and wiper blades, pressurize tires and do a quick visual inspection of vehicles. In addition to prizes and giveaways provided by the UGA Bookstore, the first 500 participants will receive a free Chick-fil-A coupon for a biscuit or sandwich courtesy of UGA Food Services. Athens Chevrolet will have a 2012 Chevrolet Volt (electric vehicle) on display for viewing. New this year, the UGA Office of Sustainability is offering free bicycle safety inspections and tune-ups for faculty, staff and students.
