Washington, D.C. – When Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) launched its Campaign to Eliminate Drunk Driving® in the fall of 2006, one state, New Mexico, had an all-offender ignition interlock law. Since then, 23 states have passed all-offender ignition interlock legislation. The Campaign continues to be the nation’s blueprint to eliminate drunk driving, and much of its success is due to passage of strong DUI laws in all 50 states. Drunk driving deaths are down more than 24 percent since 2006 and, while much has been accomplished, much more must be done.
Columbus, OH – Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) held a press conference today to raise awareness to the problem of drunk driving in Ohio and announce its support for lifesaving ignition interlock legislation, HB 469, Annie’s Law. Named after Annie Rooney who was killed by a drunk driver on July 4, 2013, this legislation would require ignition interlocks for all convicted drunk drivers, including first-time offenders, with an illegal blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08 or greater.
