MADD Panel Conducts Survey; Results Saddening



MANKATO (TEC News), November 13 – According to a survey nationwide of adults 21 and older, drinking and driving has become somewhat of an issue around the holiday season. Jennifer Freeburg, Mothers Against Drunk Driving State Executive Director says that it’s well above 50 percent:
MADD 1 : “Unfortunately the best statistic was 73% in the affirmative so we know that there are a lot of people still not planning ahead” : 09 seconds

The MADD panel as well as law enforcement around the state are encouraging people to make a plan ahead of time to stay safe on the roads.
