OSP Troopers will be offering drivers stopped for a minor equipment violation a voucher that provides a discount on automotive parts purchased at any Advance Auto Parts or participating Carquest Auto Parts store.

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.”
