Drunk driving is one of the greatest black marks on our modern society. Irresponsible drivers regularly make the reprehensible choice of getting behind the wheel after having one too many, putting all those around them in immediate and grave danger.
The catastrophic crashes that these drunk drivers cause can seriously injure or even kill others involved. One of these victims may be you or a family member or loved one.
There are many people and organizations that fight to prevent drunk driving. One of the biggest, most influential of these organizations is Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD).
According to their website, MADD's founding mission was to "aid the victims of crimes performed by individuals driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, to aid the families of such victims and to increase public awareness of the problem of drinking and drugged driving."
Today, MADD fulfills this original mission through victim services, counseling, providing resources and fighting for policy changes that add stricter penalties and greater DUI crackdown. MADD has saved 300,000 lives since 1980.
Those interested in getting involved in helping MADD reach their goal of eliminating drunk driving once and for all can volunteer or donate their time or money to the organization. You can also visit their website at madd.org to view events in your state.
For our part, we wholly support the work of MADD. For every drunk driving injury case we settle, we donate $500 from our payment to MADD. We see the dangers of drunk driving on a daily basis, and we want to see it end now.
