“Exposing a child to unreasonable risk or placing a child in imminent risk of death or serious injury is a punishable offense. These statistics are alarming and represent the need for legislation to protect our children,” said Withers.

MADD has prepared resources regarding state drunk driving and child endangerment laws that can be found on the MADD website at http://www.madd.org/drunk-driving/state-stats. Additionally, there are tools and information on madd.org for individuals who know of someone who may be driving drunk with a child in the car. MADD also has a 24-hour Help Line at 877-MADD-HELP to provide callers will information and support at no charge.
