Updated Sept. 6, 2011
The University Police Department at Northwest Missouri State University hosted a transportation fair from 1 to 5 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 1, in Lot 60, located south of the Bearcat Baseball Field.
The Police Department promoted Northwest's Safe Rides program, which offers expanded hours this year, and the Drive Safe Drive Smart campaign.
University Police officers were on hand to remove old parking permits from vehicles and check window tint levels. In addition to giveaways, the event included beer goggle activities, and the Missouri State Highway Patrol brought its crash simulator.
Northwest's transportation department demonstrated basic vehicle maintenance, including checking fluids and batteries, changing tires and checking the tire pressure.
Maryville businesses, including Shell's Service Station and Precision Lock and Key, also attended.
