AAA Michigan: Freeway Courtesy Patrol Will Cruise for Auto Show
    DEARBORN, Mich., Jan. 13 -- The Freeway Courtesy Patrol vans
that routinely cruise Detroit-area freeways may not seem as sporty as some of
the cars inside Cobo Hall during the 2000 North American International Auto
Show, but they may come in handy.
    AAA Michigan -- which operates the free emergency service on behalf of
the Alliance for a Safer, Greater Detroit -- has announced extended hours for
the vans to accommodate anticipated heavy traffic during the upcoming Auto
Show, Jan. 15-23.
    Two vans will patrol portions of I-94, I-75, the Lodge, I-375 and
Jefferson, during Saturday and Sunday from 3-10:30 p.m. (except the last
Sunday, Jan. 23, when vans will operate from 3-7:30 p.m.).
    During the week (Monday through Friday), one Freeway Courtesy Patrol van
will make scheduled runs (3-10:30 p.m.) through the Jefferson Avenue area to
check for motorists in trouble.
    Since September 1994, the Freeway Courtesy Patrol program has continued to
provide responsive mechanical and personal assistance to motorists on major
freeways within Detroit city limits and adjacent communities.  Since program
inception, 34,218 motorists have been assisted, with a 99.8-percent customer
satisfaction rating.
    It places up to six well-equipped emergency vans on selected segments of
I-75, I-94, I-96, M-10, I-696 and M-38.
