2012 New Year’s Resolutions
It may be a new year, but the fight against drunk driving is still as imperative as ever. So now, at this time of the year, a time of new beginnings, we are recommitting ourselves to making an impact in the fight against drunk driving and saving lives in 2012.
This year, we resolve to:
- Serve 65,000 victims of drunk and drugged driving, as well as recruit additional volunteer victim advocates across the country to serve even more victims. You can help becoming a MADD victim advocate or by spreading the word about MADD’s victim support services.
- Continue introducing new legislation to states that currently do not require convicted drunk drivers to use ignition interlock devices, and introduce legislation creating enhanced penalties for adults who drive drunk with children in the car. Join us by going to the policy action site to email your legislators to take action.
- Equip more parents with the tools they need to talk with their teens about alcohol and expand our parent outreach, through schools during PowerTalk21® and Red Ribbon Week, to more than 65,000 parents. Download our free parent handbook and share it with other parents you know that may want to start the conversation with their kids about alcohol.
- Walk Like MADD® with more than 20,000 walkers and raise at least 2.5 million dollars to help in our fight to eliminate drunk driving. Get involved and make a difference by registering for a Walk in your community at www.walklikemadd.org.
What are some of your resolutions? Share them on Facebook.
Thanks to good folks @MADD for providing this great information, insights and facts to help US to protect our family members!!
