Take Action – Iowa

Adoption of proven countermeasures, such as ignition interlocks for all offenders and high-visibility law enforcement activities, will make a significant impact to reduce drunk driving deaths in Iowa. MADD calls on lawmakers to expand the use of ignition interlocks to include all convicted drunk drivers at a BAC of .08. MADD also urges lawmakers to enact legislation to legalize sobriety checkpoints, which have been proven to reduce fatalities by 20 percent.
