MADD Urges Alaska Lawmakers to Maintain Current DUI Law (04/11/2014)
Juneau, AK – Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) has recognized Alaska for its efforts as a leader in the Campaign to Eliminate Drunk Driving as it is one of 20 states to require convicted drunk drivers to use an ignition interlock device. Since enacting this lifesaving legislation in 2009, Alaska has seen a dramatic reduction in the number of drunk driving deaths.

MADD Statement on Josh Brent Sentencing
Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) is shocked and appalled with the sentence handed down to former Dallas Cowboy Josh Brent for his intoxication manslaughter conviction in the death of his friend and teammate Jerry Brown. This punishment sends the message that it’s ok to drink and drive—but it’s absolutely not.

Drunk driving is unacceptable and 100 percent preventable, yet each year more than 10,000 people are killed and another 345,000 are injured in drunk driving crashes. MADD wishes that a non-drinking designated driver would’ve been a part of their plans that night, so that Jerry Brown would still be alive today.
