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.

Reviews for Mothers Against Drunk Driving
Victim Services? Ha! What a joke! My little brother was killed by a drunk driver in 2010 and I contacted MADD and all they did was send a couple of brochures on grieving and that was it! Nothing else, no legal help, no counseling, no financial help, NOTHING! Brochures on grieving.....REALLY? Everyone grieves in their on way and deals with things in different ways, you can't tell someone how to grieve! In my opinion MADD like most big non-profits have gotten greedy, it's all about the money! I've heard stories of donors keep getting gifts in the mail and the charities asking for more money. How about they stop spending all that money on gifts and use it toward the cause like they are suppose to do! And to those of you that donate to charities that take your money over seas to help poor and starving children....etc. Do you know that once that money leaves the USA their is no tracking it, your just throwing your money away. I founded a non-profit of my own to fight drunk drivers, My non-profit is ran by volunteers and all the money we take in goes directly towards fighting drunk drivers and helping the victims in everyway possible like it should be. MADD tries to change laws (so they say) and there is no way they can prove drunk driving is down because of them! I'll tell you this, counties that get voted wet always see a drop in drunk driving because they do not have to travel as far or as much to get alcohol and as far as laws are concerned.....MAKE A LAW THAT EVERY DUI CARRY WITH IT A WANTON ENDANGERMENT CHARGE because drunken drivers put everyone on our roads lives in danger! That will cut DUI's way down I guarantee that!!!
