In November 2006, MADD launched its Campaign to Eliminate Drunk Driving®. Today, on the fifth anniversary, we’re releasing a Report to the Nation, which rates each state on its progress toward eliminating drunk driving.
Since the launch in 2006, substantial progress has been made, but there is still much work to be done. The Report rates the nation three-stars on a five-star scale (based on the average of the state ratings). In addition, updated figures show that drunk driving costs the United States more than $132 billion annually.
View the full Report to the Nation to learn more, or see where your state ranks on our interactive map.
During this time of year, when drunk driving crashes are most prevalent, we are reminded that the goal of the Campaign is to have no more drunk driving victims. MADD calls on the nation to rededicate itself to saving lives, preventing injuries and eliminating this primary threat on our nation’s roadways.
MADD’s Report to the Nation is sponsored by Nationwide Insurance and State Farm Insurance. For more information about the Report, you can view the press release. For more information about MADD’s Campaign to Eliminate Drunk Driving, visit www.madd.org/campaign.
