Mothers Against Drunk Driving along with the Texas Department of Transportation kicked off a new anti-drunk driving campaign.
The new campaign is called “Take The Wheel” and it was announced the week before Christmas. The announcement occurred at Houston’s Discovery Green Park and families of people who have been killed in drunk driving accidents were on hand and many of them displayed pictures of lost love ones.
Harris County has the highest number of drunk-driving related deaths than any other county in the U.S. The MADD president is asking that people take ownership and help stop the issue. Since 2006, there has been a 30 percent decrease in drunk driving deaths.
