Preventing Substance Impaired Driving and Child Endangerment

• Put all of their belongings on the floor; • Do not bother the driver and stay quiet; • Tell a trusted grown-up immediately about the unsafe ride; • Call a parent or other loved one from a cell phone, if possible.

Final Thoughts

Children are our greatest resource and our future. MADD is taking action to help protect the children who are needlessly put in danger every day in this country. It is irresponsible to endanger an innocent child and should not be tolerated by a society that puts children first. You may be concerned for the safety of your family, friends, or community and be inspired to take action to prevent substance impaired driving crashes. Thousands of men, women and teenagers have joined MADD to make a difference in their communities. Whether donating directly to MADD, volunteering to educate others about the dangers of substance impaired driving, or working to prevent substance impaired driving crashes by strengthening laws in your state, you can make an impact. To talk with someone, find resources for your own situation, or get involved, you can call the MADD Victim Services Help Line at 1-877-MADD-HELP or 1-877-623-3435 to be connected to your local MADD office.
