Featured MADD Statements

Statement on Aldon Smith Arrest
“MADD is upset when anyone is arrested on suspicion of drunk driving; but when it’s a person’s third alleged offense, it’s an outrage. We hope no was injured or killed as a result of this alleged incident, and we support law enforcement’s efforts to thoroughly investigate the matter. If found guilty of drunk driving, we urge that Mr. Smith be required to install an ignition interlock on his vehicle to protect the public and prevent this from happening again. There were 867 drunk driving fatalities in California in 2013, more than one-fourth of all traffic fatalities in the state. With so many alternative ride options available, there’s no excuse for anyone to drink and drive.”
-MADD National President Colleen Sheehey-Church
