Help stop drunk and drugged drunk driving in Washington by contacting your state lawmakers below
Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) needs your help to advance Bentley’s Law HB 1668 in Washington to require impaired drivers to pay child support when an impaired driver causes a crash that kills a parent or guardian.
What is Bentley’s Law? The measure, HB 1668 by Representative Brandy Donaghy, is modeled after Ethan’s, Hailey’s and Bentley’s law in Tennessee, which makes impaired drivers pay child support to a surviving spouse or other relatives who are raising the children of impaired driving victims until the children turn 18.
Studies suggest if all states enacted a .05 BAC law, over 1,700 lives would be saved each year. In Utah, according to a 2022 NHTSA study, they found the new law is reducing drunk driving deaths significantly.
