The “Don’t Drip and Drive” program puts residents in the driver’s seat for finding an affordable fix to vehicle leaks. Drivers can take their vehicle to a participating repair shop for a free and easy visual leak inspection (a diagnostic service valued at up to $80) through September. If a leak is found, the driver will receive a coupon for 10 percent off service (up to $50) to fix the problem. The coupon will expire at the end of September 2014. For more information and a complete list of participating locations, visit www.fixcarleaks.org.

To take advantage of the free visual inspection for vehicle leaks, visit one of these participating repair shops in Kirkland during August or September 2014:

• All Wheel Drive Auto, 8410 120th Ave NE, (425) 828-3600

• My Auto Pro, 11902 124th Ave NE, (425) 821-2244

• Summers Automotive Service, 13205 NE 124th St No. B1, (425) 823-5214

Every year more than seven million quarts of motor oil drips out of vehicles onto streets and parking lots and makes its way to lakes, rivers, streams and the Puget Sound. By fixing leaks, participants can help reduce this pollution and extend the life of their vehicle.
