Help Advance Lifesaving Drunk Driving Reform
Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) needs your help to advance Bentley’s Law in Connecticut to require impaired drivers to pay child support when an impaired driver causes a crash that kills a parent or guardian.
Please email your lawmakers in support of Bentley’s Law here. Taking action is quick and easy.
What is Bentley’s Law? The measure, SB 844 by Senator Kissel, is modeled after a 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. For more information, please visit our website.
Bentley’s Law better ensures justice and accountability. MADD believes that passing Bentley’s Law will make people think twice before getting behind the wheel impaired. If a person makes the choice to drive impaired and kills a parent, the person will encounter another consequence for their deadly decision. To the victim of the impaired drivers, Bentley’s Law allows for another avenue of restitution to help ensure justice.
