FREE caravan and trailer safety checks will be offered to City of Wanneroo residents on Saturday, March 17 from 8am-noon.

The checks will be offered at Ashby Operations Centre on Wanneroo Road by the City’s RoadWise working group to give motorists peace of mind before travelling during the Easter and school holiday period.

Motorists can take their caravan or trailer to the centre to be inspected, ensuring it is safe to tow.

According to the City, past inspections uncovered a range of faults including worn brakes and wheel bearings, electrical problems, suspension issues and worn tyres – all of which have the potential to contribute to crashes.
