Mothers Against Drunk Driving

Rating: 2.71 stars   17 reviews

Issues: Disaster Aid, Human Services, Crime & Law

Location: 511 E John Carpenter Fwy Suite 700 Irving TX 75062 USA

Mission: The mission of MADD is to stop drunk driving, support the victims of this violent crime and prevent underage drinking.Due to the efforts of volunteers and staff tirelessly working to achieve MADD's mission, some 300,000 Americans are alive who would have otherwise been killed had drunk driving been allowed to continue at the epidemic levels of 1980. Although alcohol-related traffic deaths have decreased by more than 40 percent since MADD's founding, drunk driving remains the nation's most frequently committed violent crime. Each year nearly 13,000 people die in impaired driving crashes. Underage drinking remains the No. 1 youth drug problem, killing more young people that all other illicit drugs combined.

30 years ago my wife was killed by a drunk driver (male)
Since I was a single father led household, MADD lived up to its name.
It was full of MAD women who felt MEN were the evil ones...
This summer my lead carpenter's wife was killed by a drunk driver (female).
Again history repeats. I email MADD on 3 june, get no reply till 11 August when some
there states they tried to e-mail me on the 28 of July.

I give them a list of problems, request for literture, local contacts, etc.. all ignored..


Seems these folks can't use phones. I think they've done good work, but their time has passed....

Give your money directly to those affected locally and let these folks use their big bugs at the state houses....

I found myself in the madd office in July of 2012 after my partner of 20 years was hit by a drunk driver while using a cross-walk at a busy intersection. As you can imagine, I was and continue to be, absolutely devastated and if it weren't for the support, guidance and friendship from the madd staff, I don't know that I would be here today. The madd staff helped me through everything from emotional support which gave me the strength to make funeral arrangements, to support and guidance through the legal process and the emotional torture that goes with this. Thank you madd for all that you are doing for me and for all the help that you are giving to other victims across the country.
