Impaired Driving can refer to operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol, drugs, or both.
Founded by a mother whose daughter was killed by a drunk driver, Mothers Against Drunk Driving® (MADD) is the nation’s largest nonprofit working to protect families from drunk driving, drugged driving and underage drinking. MADD also supports drunk and drugged driving victims and survivors at no charge through local MADD victim advocates and our 24-Hour Victim Helpline 1-877-MADD-HELP.
The Toolkit is designed to guide you through the process of developing a comprehensive plan to address alcohol impaired driving in your community. The Strategic Prevention Framework (SPF) process begins with conducting a community assessment to collect data that clearly identifies and defines the impaired driving problem as well as the root causes and specific local conditions that underline the problem. In the Toolkit, start by reviewing the information about gathering data to assess community conditions.
Led by MADD founder Candace Lightner, We Save Lives (WSL) is an international coalition of partners dedicated to saving lives by combating crashes and crimes from The 3 D’s: Drunk, Drugged, and Distracted driving. We Save Lives serves as a leading representative voice on highway safety issues, combining legislative efforts with grassroots organizing at the national, state, and local levels.
