Summer should be a time of fun and relaxation. Unfortunately, for some teens, it leads to alcohol and drug use.
Today, on its 30th anniversary, we celebrate the 21 Minimum Legal Drinking Age law.
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.
Washington, D.C. – Today Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) joined Representative Nita Lowey (D-NY) on a media call in which she announced that she will be introducing Alisa’s Law when the House of Representatives reconvenes next week. This legislation would push states to require all convicted drunk driving offenders to install an ignition interlock for a minimum of six months. States that fail to comply with this mandate would face a reduction in federal transportation funding if they do not change their laws by October 1, 2014.
