As the oldest and largest not for profit grassroots organization in North America, we are dedicated to educating and training our D$W members as well as the general public, on the benefits of $mart Driving through safe and fuel efficient driving skills. These skills can be used in any vehicle, gas or electric, old or new. We also educate and promote the importance of sustainable transportation vehicles and alternative fuel technology.
WHO ARE WE:
We are a cross section of average drivers that are tired of high fuel costs and the effects of emissions on the environment. Through our D$W Planning Team, made up of world-class instructors, we are made aware of the how $mart Driving can be safe and cost efficient in their current vehicles. All of our members are taught how to be teachers and students at the same time as they learn and pay forward their new $mart Driving knowledge and skills.
WHAT WE DO:
We gather for "Meets" on a regular basis around Southeastern Wisconsin to listen to outside and member speakers that discuss $mart Driving techniques, fuel saving strategies, current and upcoming new vehicles and how to make each of our transportation choices as sustainable as possible. We exchange ideas and experiences with one another and share a pot luck meal together. Our meets are on Saturday mornings and last about 3 hours and are absolutely free and offer free driving instruction.
HOW WE DO IT:
In addition to the knowledge and experience exchange at our Meets, we offer free behind the wheel $mart Driver training to our members at the novice, intermediate and advanced level with our D$W Planning Team instructors. We offer public outreach activities at fairs and other events and perform our unique "Pump Your Ride to $avings" at various locations around the state.
