Triple-A offices across Iowa are kicking off a series of safety programs this week that’ll run into late June. Gail Weinholzer, spokeswoman for the motor club, says the events are open to everyone, not just members.
Fifty kids’ bike helmets are being given away to children at each Triple-A office in the state. There will be automotive safety events like battery checks and VIN etching, an effort to deter theft. The offices will also be offering free passport photos and carseat checks.
Weinholzer says the Safety Days events will be held at all eight branch offices statewide, in: Clive, Ankeny, Bettendorf, Iowa City, Cedar Rapids, Dubuque, Waterloo and Mason City. The events will run this Tuesday though June 24th. Weinholzer says the annual safety events have been popular in the past.
Each office last year drew 200 to 300 people. This is the fourth year for the Triple-A Safety Days. For more information, visit: “www.aaa.com“.
