TACOMA — Pierce County officials are encouraging drivers to protect their vehicles and the environment by fixing leaks.

Motorists can find an affordable fix and keep harmful pollutants out of Puget Sound with the help of the “Don’t Drip and Drive” program.

“As part of the program, participating repair shops across Washington are conducting free visual leak inspections (a diagnostic service valued at up to $80) throughout the year. If there is a problem, the driver will receive a coupon for 10 percent off service (up to $50) to fix the problem – a total savings of up to $130. The coupon will expire Dec. 31, 2017.”
