Please Support Alisa’s Law
By MADD | August 21, 2014| 2 Comments | Filed in: Drugged Driving

So far, thousands of MADD supporters have contacted their legislators in support of Alisa’s Law. We’ve helped show Congresswoman Lowey that as she fights for Alisa’s Law, she has us fighting by her side. If you haven’t emailed your legislator yet, you can do that here.

Together, we’ve changed the culture on drunk driving. In 2006, New Mexico was the only state to require all convicted drunk drivers to use an ignition interlock. Today, thanks to you and MADD supporters like you, almost half of all states have passed similar laws.

But we need to keep the fight going to get the other 26 states to pass this lifesaving legislation so that convicted drunk drivers can’t continue to endanger innocent lives.

With your support, this new legislation that bears Alisa’s name can protect another daughter, son, mother, father, sister, or brother from sharing her fate. Please make your urgent tax-deductible contribution today.

“As honored as I am to have this legislation in Alisa’s name, I wish more than anything that we didn’t need an Alisa’s Law, or a Leandra’s Law in New York, or an Emma’s Law in South Carolina, or a Melanie’s Law in Massachusetts – or any more laws to stop this needless and 100% preventable crime.”

– Jan Withers, MADD National President

Why don't we ask CVS pharmacies to remove alcoholic beverages from their stored, along with the cigarettes. I am far more worried about the drunk drivers on the road

I am an avid writer. Often I will send typed letters to figures in high office to let them know my concerns. I write to congressmen, Senators, Schools Superintendents and recently, the Governor of North Carolina as well as CEO's of organizations or companies. I plan to generate a letter to my Congressman in order to convince him to support "Alisa's Law. Personally, I also do my part to battle drunk driving, by putting on Power Point presentations at High Schools in my area or region. I'm a family victim.
