Washington's Better Brakes Law: A national model for improving water quality (Number of pages: 12) (Publication Size: 684KB)
|Description||This report documents the recommendations of the Brake Friction Material Advisory Committee, as required under Revised Code of Washington 70.285.050, also known as the Better Brakes Law. The Committee found that alternative copper-free brake friction materials are available for vehicles to allow a phase-out of copper by 2025. The Committee also found that categories of exemptions in Washington’s Better Brake Rule are sufficient and no further exemptions are needed. If additional exemptions are needed in the future, they can be addressed under the exemptions application process in the Washington law.|
