Chief Executive Officer
Mothers Against Drunk Driving

Dear Law Enforcement Officer,

Since 1980, Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD)® has worked side-by-side with law enforcement with only one focus – eliminating impaired driving. From being on the forefront of MADD’s Campaign to Eliminate Drunk Driving to partnering with various programs and events, law enforcement has allowed us to be visible to the community while also saving lives.

Unfortunately, drunk driving deaths continue to rise. Over the past three years, the U.S. has seen an increase in impaired driving, especially during the pandemic. Overall, drunk driving deaths increased by 14% in 2020 and again in 2021, rising to more than 13,000 for the first time since 2006.

With these astonishing numbers, we have much work to do, and we cannot finish the fight without you. I value our long-standing partnership and applaud your dedicated efforts while risking your lives every day helping us end this 100% preventable crime.

Thank you for all you do and together we will create a nation of No More Victims.
