"The mission of MADD is to end drunk diving, help fight drugged driving, support the victims of these violent crimes and prevent underage drinking."

The Mission

Established: September 5, 1980

Our focus is to "aid the victims of crimes performed by individuals driving under the influence of alcohol or durgs, to aid the families of such victims and to increase public awareness of the problem of drinking and drugged driving"

Imagine if this car accident had been you or one of your family members. How do you think they would react to hearing that youve been in an accident due to drunk driving? How would you react if you recieved the call?

Here are actual drunk driving facts and statistics:
