Don't Drip and Drive

Location: Washington


Improving an incentive program that prevents harmful runoff by fixing vehicle leaks

STORM—a coalition of Puget Sound-area cities and counties working together to minimize polluted runoff—chose Cascadia to lead a comprehensive evaluation of its Don’t Drip & Drive. Fix that Leak! pilot program. The outreach campaign aimed to engage drivers in finding and fixing vehicle leaks. In our evaluation of this campaign, we tracked the number vehicles inspected and repaired, documented results of the media campaign and social marketing efforts by local jurisdictions, assessed cost effectiveness, and identified lessons learned. The report will help STORM’s 30 local jurisdictions improve implementation and obtain grants to fund future campaigns to reduce vehicle leaks. Cascadia also conducted follow-on interviews with a number of participating oil change shops to identify industry-perceived strengths and weaknesses of different campaign scenarios that may be used in the future.

I was very pleased with the experience we had recently working with Cascadia to develop our carbon inventory and finalize our sustainable action guide. It’s a very daunting task to begin the process of changing the way we do business and measure our success so to have the combination of expertise and patience that you brought to the effort really made it enjoyable. I look forward to continuing to work with Cascadia as BNBuilders moves farther and farther along in this process.
