Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) needs two minutes of your time to help stop drunk driving. Congressman Thomas Massie (R-KY) introduced a proposal that would reverse a 2021 law that will eliminate impaired driving. The proposal may receive a U.S. House of Representatives vote tonight!
Congressman Massie’s proposal erases the hard work by impaired driving victims, survivors and supporters who advocated for a federal law requiring impaired driving prevention technology in all new cars. The bipartisan Honoring Abbas Family Legacy to Terminate (HALT) Drunk Driving Act was signed into law in November 2021 as part of the bipartisan infrastructure law. The provision requires the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) to issue a rulemaking by 2024 to make passive impaired driving prevention technology standard in new cars.
Congressman Massie’s amendment to DOT’s FY 2024 funding bill would probit the implementation of this lifesaving law that when implemented will save more than 10,000 lives annually, according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
