On Wednesday, November 16th, MADD will mark the fifth anniversary of its Campaign to Eliminate Drunk Driving® by issuing a drunk driving progress report. Our Report to the Nation is based on a five-star scale, and rates the nation as a whole, along with each state, on their progress towards eliminating drunk driving through objective, proven countermeasures.
The Campaign was launched to bring about a quicker end to the leading cause of highway deaths. After just five years:
- 15 states have mandatory all-offender ignition interlock laws, up from only one state.
- All 50 states now have some form of ignition interlock law, up from 45.
- Advanced in-vehicle alcohol detection technology is no longer just a concept, now in its second phase of development.
Make sure to check back on Wednesday, November 16th to download your free copy of MADD’s Report to the Nation.
