JACKSON, MS -

This is a news release from MADD

Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) will be at the Capitol on Tuesday and Wednesday to call on the Legislature to improve drunk driving laws in Mississippi.

MADD will announce findings of a recent report that shows ignition interlocks have prevented 2,835 drunk driving attempts in Mississippi in just one year since the state’s all-offender ignition interlock laws was enacted. 

 MADD will urge lawmakers to advance legislation to help boost interlock installations for DUI offenders and will urge lawmakers to ensure a statewide database is created so courts can have access to drunk driving records across local jurisdictions.
