The New York Times Hits the Nail on the Head

MADD shared the response below to The New York Times wheels blog titled "Support Grows for Alcohol Interlocks on Cars." The journalist got it right. Interlocks do work and people who drive drunk deserve them. Some want everyone to believe MADD stands for Mothers Against Drinking Daiquiris and that is just wrong. We're ok if you drink a daiquiri, we just want you to make sure you designate a sober driver before you do.

MADD response on NYT blog:

If we have vehicle features that already work overtime to protect and assist the driver, it only makes sense to add anti-drunk driving to that list. No one wants to share the roads with a drunk driver and nearly 13,000 people a year die because of drunk driving and so many more are injured. MADD wants to use technology to stop drunk driving not drinking alcohol.
