Featured MADD Statement

Statement regarding Tiger Woods:

“When influential athletes and celebrities like Tiger Woods allegedly make the decision to drive impaired, it sends a dangerous and deadly message. There are no excuses to drive under the influence of any impairing substance, whether its alcohol or any legal or illegal impairing drugs. We’re just grateful no one was hurt or killed as a result of his choices and actions.”
