If you haven’t heard of MADD before or have but don’t know who they are, we strongly urge you to take a minute to learn about them. Drunk Driving is an issue that can impact any person anywhere in the world. In the United States where the NHTSA reports that a person is injured in a drunk driving crash every 2 minutes, we have made great strides in awareness regarding the dangers of driving under the influence thanks to organizations like MADD but there is still a long way to go. See what Walk Like MADD events are happening in your area or maybe considering starting one of your own.

Take Action Against Drunk Driving
Being involved or losing a loved one in a crash caused by a drunk driver is not only devastating but completely preventable. Whether you are the guy who grabs the keys from your tipsy friend or the mom who constantly drills the importance of practicing safe driving habits to your teen (or fully grown child), we thank you and ask you go a step further. Education is the most important thing but action can add impact to any effort. Join one of the many Walk Like MADD Events throughout the year in your state and take action against drunk driving.
