I am exposed to this group through Facebook ad at rallies where I see people wearing the patch. This is a noble and critical cause. Having once been under the addiction to alcohol (freed for 5 years praise God) I have seen firsthand the damage drinking and driving/riding can do. Keep up the great work !!

I watched people during events, get drunk and ride/drive home and B.A.D.D. kiosks were the only one's pushing the idea and speaking of the dangers of drunk driving.... I was impressed because it is all party, alcohol and nothing else! Refreshing to see some responsibility at major events.

I'm greatful for a group like this bringing awareness of a all to common disease. Bikers have been given a bad name for so many years of being alcoholics and drinking and driving I'm glad to see there are bikers out there fighting against it. Again thank you for what you do.

I am a Licensed Thanatologist (Grief and Loss Counselor) and I was thrown into this field after losing my 26 yr old wife (Tina) and 5 yr old son (Eddie) to the irresponsible negligence of a drunk driver in 1989. I have been a Founder of Mothers Against Drunk Driving - Indiana, spoken at the White House in D.C., and Founded other entities that surround themselves with the seriousness about Drunk Driving. I salute B.A.D.D. for their existence and as the Founder/President of the Wild At Heart Motorcycle Club (www.wildatheartmotorcycleministry) I can say that we all appreciate their efforts immensely.

thanks guys and God Bless!

What more can I say about this organization other than it is Great! As a member of B.A.D.D it is our goal to ensure that we educate the public about the dangers of Drunk Driving. We can do this by setting up booths at rallies, or just by our members simply wearing their B.A.D.D. gear to get people talking. The camaraderie and friendships that are built on this common goal also help to kindle the fire of keeping bikers safer buy trying to eliminate drinking and riding! As a former police officer I have seen the dangers that Drinking and Riding can pose. It was a no brainer for me to join this wonderful organization!

Fortunately I don't know anyone who has been affected by the horrors that come from drink drivers and I really hope it stays that way. We read of the horrors on a weekly basis and this is unacceptable there should be zero tolerance on drinking and driving, if you want a drink leave the car at home simple as. I have no sympathy for anyone that does it and gets caught, if they loose their job it's just tough. I am looking forward to sporting your patch and I shall be advertising this great site in my FB page.

Many thanks for the great work you guys do.
Kind regards and great respect
Nigel.

I live in an area where there is a very active chapter of BADD.
I see them as I watch in horror the many tragedies that occur. They are on the scene offering their assistance and care.
I am not a biker, but so appreciate everything they do. Unfortunately, I cannot afford to financially support BADD, but wish to show my support for what they do.

Nov. 11, 2012 The worst day of my life. My daughter Jocelyn Beth Elberson was walking her puppy on the Amherst Bike Path in Buffalo NY, we got her it after open heart surgery. My wife and sister in law were with her. It was a very warm fall day and everyone was enjoying the day. All of a sudden along comes a bunch of bikes one of them passed the others just befor a slight curve and lost it hitting my daughter head on killing her and throwing her body 132 feet over the heads of my wife and sister in law he then slammed into another couple walking killing that woman and severely injuring her husband. Later we found out that the driver had 6 prior DWI 's. This man is currently serving 4-12 years in prison while all of us including my daughter are serving a life sentence!! Please don't drink and drive people have a plan. The picture is of Jocelyn and me earlier that summer.

November 11, 2012 my daughter Jocelyn was walking her new puppy for exercise. She recently had open heart surgery to fix her valve. It was a very beautiful warm fall day. Lots of people taking advantage of the great weather. My wife and sister inlaw were walking with each other and Jocelyn was 20 feet in front of them. All of a sudden a biker came along going faster than he should have ,misjudged his speed for the curve lost control and slammed into Jocelyn tossing her 135 ft. over my wife's head then crashing into another older couple killing both Jocelyn and the other woman. The other woman's husband was severely injured . The biker was drunk and this was his 7th DWI. My wife and I are working to get change in our leagal system to increase the punishment for repeat offenders in New York from the maximum 5-15 to 10-20. This law would be called Jocelyns law. I would love to wear the B. A. D. D. Patch in honor of Jocelyn to help spread the word. Don't Drink and Drive. Thanks for all your good work.

As someone who has lost a family member and a good friend to drunk drivers, I totally support the message that the folks at BADD are putting out to the world. I am a biker. I do not drink, even though I know that is kind of part of the "biker world" or the "biker image", the partying and drinking, well, not all of them do that, but those that do, I sure do wish they did not. It bothers me greatly to see folks drinking and riding a motorcycle, just the same as it bothers me to see people drinking and driving a car. All recipes for disaster. I greatly limit the number of bikers that will hang out with me because of my views and very outspoken opinion on biking and drinking but hey, I really do not care. I want to get home alive. I want all my biker friends to get home alive too. Sure the majority of drinking related accidents are caused by four wheeled vehicles but there is a fair share of two wheeled accidents out there too. Keep up the great work of raising awareness BADD! I think you all are just "bad to the bone" in everything you do for the biker world!

I have enjoyed the total message of BADD as it relates to awareness and the importance of never drinking and driving. The statistics provided tell the whole story but we need this champion message carrier to keep the seriousness of the privilege of personal travel and the headline of seriousness and sobriety that it carries. As the board chair of a local soup, meal & health kitchen I know you need great support at all levels to be successful.
Kudos to BADD
