Operation Safe Drive 2020

On Tuesday, November 24, University of Georgia students, faculty and staff are invited to have their vehicle inspected for free between 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. at the Tate Center Parking Deck during Transportation and Parking Services' annual Operation Safe Drive event to help drivers prepare for safe travel during the holidays.

To ensure a contactless experience and to maintain social distance, drivers will remain in their vehicle while mechanics from UGA Transportation and Parking Services top off fluids, check belts and wiper blades, pressurize tires and do a quick visual inspection of vehicles.

No car? No problem – the UGA Office of Sustainability in partnership with Bike Athens will offer free bicycle safety inspections and tune-ups.

Pop-up Surveillance Testing will also be available during Operation Safe Drive for all UGA community members. Bring your UGA ID. Do not eat, drink or smoke/chew tobacco 30 minutes before your test.
