New MADD Report Reveals Improvement on Drunk Driving Reform Nationwide
Date:1/8/2014

Washington, DC (PRWEB) January 08, 2014

Today, Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) released Campaign to Eliminate Drunk Driving: 2014 Report to the Nation, an update of MADD’s Campaign advocacy efforts. The report provides an overview of legislative accomplishments, highlights state-by-state drunk driving reform, and provides a glimpse of what is on the horizon.

“Seeing drunk driving fatalities increase for the first time in six years, the nation must now double down on proven drunk driving countermeasures,” said Jan Withers, MADD National President. “Our Campaign is working; the Department of Transportation just concluded the Driver Sober or Get Pulled Over high visibility enforcement campaign, 20 states now have all- offender ignition interlock laws, and the federal government and the auto industry just announced a five-year extension of the research agreement to develop advanced, in-vehicle alcohol detection technologies.”

MADD’s Campaign to Eliminate Drunk Driving has seen substantial progress in its three components:

  •     Support for high-visibility law enforcement activities
  •     Legislation requiring ignition interlocks for all-convicted drunk drivers
  •     Development of advanced, in-vehicle alcohol detection technology

“The Campaign is a blueprint for the nation to eliminate drunk driving,” said Debbie Weir, MADD Chief Executive Officer. “Our emphasis is to eliminate drunk driving so that in the near future we will no longer have victims of this 100 percent preventable crime that causes lifelong tragic consequences for families and loved ones.”

Unique to this report is the five-star rating of each state. States receive a star to indicate the adoption of these drunk driving laws and/or implementation of a proven countermeasure:
