Coping with Career-Changing Injuries
By MADD | July 24, 2014

Every 90 seconds, someone is injured in a drunk driving crash. And as we know, first there’s the crash, then the lifelong impact. No one should try to minimize the challenge of adjusting to a new future or letting go of an old life. The reality is that many injured victims must build new lives, and often that includes a new career.

MADD’s Campaign has Strengthened Drunk Driving Laws in 24 States (07/24/2014)
Washington, D.C. – When Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) launched its Campaign to Eliminate Drunk Driving® in the fall of 2006, one state, New Mexico, had an all-offender ignition interlock law. Since then, 23 states have passed all-offender ignition interlock legislation. The Campaign continues to be the nation’s blueprint to eliminate drunk driving, and much of its success is due to passage of strong DUI laws in all 50 states. Drunk driving deaths are down more than 24 percent since 2006 and, while much has been accomplished, much more must be done.

Featured MADD Statements

It’s irresponsible for any adult, especially someone as high-profile as President Obama, to make light of underage drinking when teen alcohol use kills 4,700 young people every year. We hope that respected and influential adults delivering high school commencement speeches will take that role seriously. Not all teens drink underage. It’s not a rite of passage. Teen drinking is illegal and dangerous. We must do everything in our power to keep our teens healthy and safe. MADD urges all parents to use this graduation season as an opportunity to have open and loving conversations with their teens about not drinking alcohol under 21, including setting clear rules and consequences—because, unfortunately, teens are not as invincible as they may think they are.
