Drive$mart Wisconsin

"Drive Less When You Can... Drive $mart When You Do."

D$W will be in a temporary holding pattern while Marie and I move to our new home in June 2017. The Fons family has enjoyed almost 40 years of lake living on beautiful Pewaukee Lake, but with our retirements coming up, it'll be time to move to smaller quarters. We'll be moving to Jackson WI, just north of Milwaukee, but will continue to keep our D$W group moving forward at our Greenfield Public Library home.

Having never moved in 40 years and never have bought or sold property, these last couple months have been pretty stressful and scary. We now appreciate all those that have gone through this process before and in the end this experience will make us a stronger couple and family. One of the things we're looking forward too, among many, will be our arrival of our new 2017 Prius Prime Premium in beautiful Blue Magnetism which is being made as I write and should be coming over from Japan in early July.

So stay tune and we'll be getting together in August/September to renew the 12th year of camaraderie, education, good food, spectacular prizes and mutual encouragement/support.

Our planet Earth is our home, and D$W has over 48 Meets and over 12 years we have tried to “Protect Our Home” by teaching thousands of drivers to Drive $marter.  As our country moves forward in a new direction, 2017 and years to come may put all of our D$W members and friends to their stiffest test in these initial12 years of “Protecting Our Home”.

D$W has never been a political group, but rather a grassroots group of activists that passionately believe that one of the best ways to “Protect Our Home” is with our STEP Program of supporting, training, educating and promoting green transportation and teaching Driving $marter techniques. The rewards for this effort are when the drivers see the money they’re saving and the corresponding mitigation of the effects of climate change. 

We all have met the skeptics that believe that D$W techniques won’t work, but once behind the wheel and after hearing the stories and connecting with other D$W members they become believers. All this takes is patience, persistence, practice and the continuing encouragement of each member. So let 2017 be the year of re-committing your passion to D$W and help provide the evidence that green transportation and Driving $marter is not only important but also critical to our efforts in “Protecting Our Home”.

 
As you can see above, Drive$mart Wisconsin members are just average drivers like you that have made a commitment to change their lives by changing their driving habits. By adapting their habits they will save money on fuel and maintenance costs, become safer drivers and become part of the solution to our state and this countries sustainable transportation concerns.

At D$W, our purpose is to educate and train any driver to become safer and more fuel efficient with their current vehicle.  Through our STEP program to SUPPORT, TRAIN, EDUCATE, and PROMOTE; we can increase safety, lower fuel maintenance costs, reduce oil dependency and lower tailpipe emissions.  

We advocate our changing our current driving habits through;
