Last year AAA says they responded to more than half a million service calls in northern New England. To avoid a road service emergency, AAA is offering free car care clinics to members and non-members during the month of October. They say no appointment is necessary. 

According to Tom Giason, of AAA, many of the most common driving emergencies can be easily avoided by preparing your vehicle for the winter. 

Technicians will check tires, fluid levels, windshield wipers, battery, charging system, brakes, lights, belts, and hoses.

All clinics will be held at the AAA offices from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
