OSP announces auto part discount program

Salem, Ore. – If you get pulled over by Oregon State Police for a minor equipment violation, you may get a discount on auto parts so you can fix the problem.

In collaboration with Advance Auto Parts/Carquest Auto Parts, OSP has announced their new “Car Care Program” this week.

OSP said troopers will be offering drivers who get stopped for a minor equipment violation vouchers that can be used for discounts at participating Advance Auto Parts or Carquest Auto Parts.

“When an OSP Trooper stops a vehicle for an equipment violation, they understand some individuals defer maintenance on their automobile to pay for other necessities instead, such as groceries and rent. The Car Care Program allows us in a small way to assist individuals and families with improving the safety of their vehicle and our highways. Every OSP Trooper understands they can influence the trajectory of a person’s life, which is why ‘Compassion’ is a core value of our agency,” said OSP Superintendent Travis Hampton.

According to OSP, of the 20,000 warnings and citations issued for equipment violations, 77-percent were for operating without required lighting.

OSP began distributing the vouchers state-wide on February 21.
