Drivers stopped for minor equipment violations in Oregon are getting some help bringing their vehicles back into compliance.

In an effort to improve public safety and assist the communities that it serves, the Oregon State Police (OSP) is partnering with Advance Auto Parts on a new initiative called the Car Care Program.

When Oregon state troopers stop motorists for minor equipment violations, they’re offering them a voucher that provides a discount on automotive parts purchased at any Advance Auto Parts or participating Carquest Auto Parts store.

“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,” Oregon State Police Superintendent Travis Hampton said. “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.”

Beginning Feb. 21, the Oregon State Police started distributing the vouchers statewide.

In 2016, the Oregon State Police issued more than 20,000 warnings/citations for equipment violations. Seventy-seven percent of those violations were due to ORS 816.330 – Operating Without Required Lighting. Required lighting includes all external vehicle lighting such as blinkers, headlights and taillights. The violations directly affect the safety of all vehicles on Oregon roadways.

“We’re pleased to partner with the Oregon State Police on the Car Care Program,” said Walter Scott, chief marketing officer for Roanoke, Va.-based Advance Auto Parts. “Advance is passionate about serving our customers and communities and our team members are always ready with the parts and advice that customers’ need to keep their vehicles running safely.”
