Contact your representative to support legislation to required interlock devices for all DUI Drivers.

Updated: Mar 4

Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) needs your help to stop drunk driving by urging lawmakers to support AB 2210 introduced by Assemblywoman Petrie-Norris that would make California the 36th state to require ignition interlocks for all convicted drunk drivers.  

Taking action is quick and easy. Please feel free to personalize your letter to your lawmakers using the MADD form provided in the link by March 5.

How can this legislation save lives? 

Since 2019, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), drunk driving deaths in California have increased 42 percent, resulting in 1,370 preventable deaths in 2021. According to a 2018 Insurance Institute for Highway Safety study, laws like AB 2210 reduce drunk driving deaths by 16 percent. AB 2210 could potentially save more than 200 lives per year.

What is an ignition interlock? 

An ignition interlock is a device about the size of a smart phone that is wired into the ignition system of a vehicle. If an interlock detects alcohol in a user, the vehicle will not start. Currently, these devices are required for all repeat offenders in California. From 2006 to 2022, ignition interlocks have prevented over 367,000 attempts to drink drunk in California. Can you imagine how many more attempts to drive drunk will be stopped by enacting AB 2210?
