Mothers Against Drunk Driving!
This organization was founded in California on September 5, 1980. Their mission is to stop drunk driving everywhere. There are many laws.. MADD was heavily involved in lobbying to reduce the legal limit for blood alcohol from BAC .10 to BAC .08. In 2000, this standard was passed by Congress and by 2004, every state had a legal .08 BAC limit. MADD Canada has called for a maximum legal BAC of .05. Although many MADD leaders have supported a lower limit, MADD has not called for a legal limit of .05 in the United States.
THE BEGINNING OF IT ALL:
Their trying to stop drunk drivers..
They want us to stop drunk driving everywhere. They want their to be no more drunk driving everywhere. It kills too many people and too many people get injured from drunk drivers.
MADD started out as a small organization and than it grew from people donating money to their cause.
DID YOU KNOW...
The woman that created MADD, her daughter died from a drunk driver. She didn't want anymore deaths to occur to anybody else. So, she created MADD to stop drunk drivers and people driving on drugs.
