Laws they Helped Influence or Pass
As mentioned before MADD worked with president Ronald Reagan in July 17 1984, to make the legal drinking age 21 years old the national drinking limit. In 1995 is when they helped pass Zero Tolerance where no one under 21 can have no alcohol in there system why driving. By 2004 they were finally able to make it illegal to have more than .08 percent alcohol in your system.
Since 1980 MADD has been doing what it can to save as many lives and high/drunk drivers behind bars as they can. In the earlier stages MADD started picking up at a quick rate across the nation volunteers were grabbing picket signs and started marching with the masses in front of state capitals. In 1984 just four years after the organization was started it even caught the eye of the president of the time. The movement isn't just motivating mothers and fathers but also teenagers to make sure they don't drink underage or ever get in a car that is being driven by a person who's been drinking. MADD has saved numerous lives through out the years just 2016 alone they saved around 330,000 lives.
