WHO: Incoming MADD National President Nina Walker (Presidential Term: 2018 – 2020)
WHY: Tragedy has sadly played a huge role in Florida’s recent history. In 2016, over 800 people were killed due to drunk driving crashes. Each year officers arrest more than a million DUI or DWI offenders who no longer compromise the safety of our roads. Each crash, each injury, and each death impact not only the person involved in the crash, but also family, friends, classmates, colleagues and more. Each one of these injuries and deaths are 100% preventable.
For those personally impacted by drunk driving, drugged driving and underage drinking consequences, MADD Victim Services are available at no charge, serving one person every fifteen minutes through local victim advocates and MADD’s 24- Hour Victim Help Line, 1- 877-MADD-HELP.
