A good reason to help MADD

Comments Off

While this is primarily for our Alabama readers, I suspect the message applies to some degree for all of our readers. While drunken driving deaths declined in 32 states last year, the numbers actually rose in Alabama. Federal traffic safety officials say there were 341 such deaths in Alabama two years ago and 367 last year. That’s an 8% increase and certainly not good news. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says there was a 2% decrease in fatal crashes in 2004 involving at least a driver or a motorcycle rider with an illegal blood-alcohol level of .08% or higher. The deaths in Alabama are way too high and we must do everything possible to bring these numbers down. In addition to letting our political leaders know we expect something to be done, helping MADD is another way you can assist in getting drunk drivers off the road.
