Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) congratulates Dr. Steven Cliff on his confirmation as Administrator of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

We look forward to continuing our work with NHTSA and Dr. Cliff at a time when leadership and aggressive action are needed to address the rise in deaths on our roadways. NHTSA’s recent announcement that 2021 was the worst year for traffic deaths in 16 years is further evidence that bold approaches are needed to turn around this public safety crisis. Having the first Senate-confirmed leader at NHTSA since 2017 is a positive step toward addressing the heartbreaking tragedies that are devastating families and communities across the country.
