Winter driving can sometimes be challenging for seniors—so it’s important that their cars can handle the rigors of the road.
To ensure that those cars are safe for wintry weather, the Barrington Police Department will sponsor a senior car safety check on Saturday, December 8, from 9 - 11:30 a.m., at the Barrington Public Safety Building, 400 N. Northwest Highway, Barrington.
Mechanics from Marquardt of Barrington will conduct a 21-point inspection to check for basic safety and maintenance issues. The service is free, and no appointments are necessary; each inspection should last about 15 minutes. Participants will receive a written report that they can take to the mechanic who maintains their car.
Sponsors of the event are the Barrington Police & Fire Departments, Barrington Area Council on Aging (BACOA) & Marquardt of Barrington Buick-GMC.
For any additional information, contact Officer Whitcher at the Barrington Police Department at (847) 304-3300.
