“It is clearly evident that our system is broken when someone can get arrested for Driving While Intoxicated not once, but twice in three months and still be on the streets wreaking havoc. We demand to know how this could happen, and we ask all Americans to demand more from our courts, our laws, and our society. It’s time to treat this crime like the violent offense it is.” – MADD National President Helen Witty

About Mothers Against Drunk Driving
Founded in 1980 by a mother whose daughter was killed by a drunk driver, Mothers Against Drunk Driving® (MADD) is the nation’s largest nonprofit working to end drunk driving, help fight drugged driving, support the victims of these violent crimes and prevent underage drinking. MADD has helped to save nearly 380,000 lives, reduce drunk driving deaths by more than 50 percent and promote designating a non-drinking driver. MADD’s Campaign to Eliminate Drunk Driving® calls for law enforcement support, ignition interlocks for all offenders and advanced vehicle technology. MADD has provided supportive services to nearly one million drunk and drugged driving victims and survivors at no charge through local victim advocates and the 24-Hour Victim Help Line 1-877-MADD-HELP.
