Two Global Issues classes are working together to check tire pressures and adjust them accordingly to achieve the regulated amount required in order to be safe and not waste gas.
With permission of the car owner, the students will adjust cars’ tire pressures in the Primary Staff parking lot in front of Vaughn and the Sykes Faculty parking lot.
The students will perform this community service two days a week for two weeks in the hopes that others will realize the great importance of maintaining a balanced tire pressure not only for safety reasons but to participate globally in reducing their carbon footprint towards global warming.
All students participating in the event will be dressed in orange vests and will be equipped with the tools and machinery necessary for proper tire pressure adjustment.
Once each car is serviced an index car will be placed on the windshield containing the cars original tire pressure and the adjusted tire pressure.
The program will run from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. on March 25 in the Sykes lot and again from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. on March 27 in the lot in front of Vaughn.
On March 31 and April 2, the program will run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Sykes and Vaughn parking lots, respectively.
