MADD Tennessee In Danger of Losing Specialty License Plate (06/23/2016)
Nashville, TN. – Mothers Against Drunk Driving® (MADD) needs the public’s help. Unfortunately, MADD is in danger of losing their specialty license plate in Tennessee if they do not reach the minimum requirement of 500 plate purchases by June 30, 2016. Tennessee is currently one of only four states offering a MADD specialty plate.

Featured MADD Statement

The following statement was issued today by Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) General Counsel Adam Vanek regarding the U.S. Supreme Court’s affirmation of states’ rights to impose modest penalties for refusing an alcohol breath test.

“MADD is pleased that today the Supreme Court has affirmed states’ rights to charge suspected drunk drivers with a misdemeanor for refusing to submit to an alcohol breath test. Breath tests are a critical tool for law enforcement officers who are on the front lines in the battle to eliminate the completely preventable crime of drunk driving. The Court recognized that breath tests are minimally invasive and confirmed that driving is a privilege, not a right.” - Adam Vanek, MADD General Counsel
