40 Million in U.S. Driving Drunk or Drugged
Date:12/9/2010

In an effort to keep drunk drivers off roadways, MADD is calling on states to pass legislation requiring an ignition interlock for all convicted drunk driving offenders, Duerr said.

This device -- which tests for alcohol on a driver's breath before permitting the car to start -- requires the driver to blow into a hand-held sensor unit attached to the ignition. The car will turn on only if the breathalyzer finds the driver's breath alcohol content is under the legal limit.

Of the states shown in the report to have significant declines in drunk driving rates, four had passed all-offender ignition interlock laws between 2005 and 2009, she noted. Also, the report shows that Wisconsin -- currently the only state where driving with a blood alcohol level of .08 is not a criminal offense -- has the highest drunk driving rates, Duerr said.

"MADD remains committed to educating the public about the dangers of drunk driving and underage drinking, while providing free support to the victims and survivors of drunk driving crashes," she said.
