Mothers Against Drunk Driving - Brief History

Mothers Against Drunk Driving, or MADD, was founded in 1980 in the state of California. In its first few years, Mothers Against Drunk Driving was received well and by 1982, President Reagan invited them to be a member of his Presidential Commission on Drunk Driving. A year later, MADD moved their main offices to Texas. By 1998, Mothers Against Drunk Driving had spearheaded a zero tolerance initiative that passed in all 50 states.

Born out of tragedy, MADD is now the foremost authority in drunk driving statistics, education, and prevention. For more information on Mothers Against Drunk Driving and their other initiatives, visit their website or any of their local offices.
