Honoring Our Heroes for their Excellence in Saving Lives!

About Mothers Against Drunk Driving
When MADD was founded in 1980, drunk
driving killed more than 21,000 people
annually. Since that time, the number of drunk
driving deaths has been cut by more than half.
Sadly though, drunk driving still accounts for
nearly one third of all traffic fatalities. MADD
has put a face on this violent crime and has
made drunk driving socially unacceptable.
Why it Should Matter to You
• One in three people will be involved in an
alcohol-related crash in their lifetime.
• Last year, North Carolina lost 413 people
due to alcohol related crashes and over
8,000 were injured.
• On average a drunk driver has driven
drunk 80-88 times before he/she is
MADD Goes into Action
• Support our heroes - Support highvisibility law enforcement to catch drunk
drivers and discourage others from
driving drunk.
• Sober to start - Require ignition
interlock devices, or in-car breathalyzers,
for all convicted drunk drivers, to prove
they are sober before their car will start.
• Secure the future - Support the
development of automotive technologies
to automatically determine whether or
not the driver is above the legal limit of
.08 BAC. Advance technology is different
than an interlock as it is passive and will
render the car inoperable if the driver is
1 in 3 people will be involved in a
drunk driving crash in their lifetime.
This is 100% preventable.
