Don’t Drip & Drive

Don’t Drip & Drive aims to educate Washington drivers about the importance of checking for vehicle leaks and of regular vehicle inspections, whether on their own or at a repair shop. To encourage Washington residents to improve the reliability and safety of their cars, Don’t Drip & Drive offers drivers a way to take their vehicles to a participating repair shop for a free and easy visual leak inspection.
About Us

Don’t Drip and Drive is a regional campaign made possible by grants from the Washington State Department of Ecology and contributing partner repair shops. The campaign is organized by a steering committee and supported by local jurisdictions, state agencies, and non-profit organizations working together to protect Puget Sound.

Each year, vehicles driving around Puget Sound leak approximately 7 million quarts of vehicle fluids, including motor oil, fuel, lubricants, and more into the Puget Sound watershed. Oil and other petroleum products can harm wildlife and habitat. When it rains, stormwater runoff carries petroleum products that drip from our cars to rivers, streams, lakes, and Puget Sound. Don’t Drip and Drive offers drivers a unique opportunity to save money on vehicle maintenance while helping protect our waters for future generations.
