Mid West Vehicle Safety Checking Day

Posted on: Monday, 23 December 2019 at 12:00:00 AM

A number of local businesses in Geraldton volunteered their time on the last Saturday morning of November to conduct free car safety checks and talk to people about the importance of vehicle safety. 

Spirit Radio broadcast the event live from Midwest Windscreens, whilst the windscreen team checked for cracks and chips, and provided advice on window tinting.

Staff from Bridgestone checked tyre pressures, tread checks and balance queries and Mainline Automotive checked mechanical-related safety issues.

A child car restraint checking station was coordinated by WALGA's RoadWise, helping ensure child car restraints were installed correctly. 

The event was well attended with many local drivers taking the opportunity have their vehicles checked, speak to experienced staff and even to grab a free sausage sizzle in the process.
