MAAD Has Another Reason to Be Mad



Andy Dean/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- Tougher laws against drunk driving don’t seem to deter many people from driving while impaired by alcohol.

That would explain why 73 percent of adults 21 and older in a survey conducted by Mothers Against Drunk Driving say that they’ve “seen someone try to drive home after drinking too much.”

MAAD also asked respondents what they did after encountering a person who shouldn’t get behind the wheel of a car. The responses:

  • 46 percent drove the person home themselves;
  • 41 percent took away their keys;
  • 40 percent told the party host;
  • 25 percent called them a cab;
  • 19 percent did nothing;
  • 13 percent “other;” and
  • 2 percent called law enforcement.
