MADD Praises Nita Lowey's Efforts To Fight Drunken Driving

ROCKLAND COUNTY, N.Y. -- U.S. Rep. Nita Lowey, D-Rockland/Westchester, was thanked Monday by Mothers Against Drunk Driving for her support in the battle to eliminate drunk driving and for pushing Congress to fund the Driver Alcohol Detection System for Safety.

DADSS research funding is included in the recently passed Highway Bill. The funding continues work on a passive, in-car safety feature that will stop a car from moving if the driver is drunk. Congress first approved funding for DADSS under MAP-21 in 2012.

“Rep. Lowey continues to be a stalwart leader in her commitment to stopping the completely preventable crime of drunk driving," said MADD National President Colleen Sheehey-Church. "The development of DADSS gives us all reason to believe we can finally put an end to the scourge of drunk driving and create a world with no more victims.”

Lowey added: “We must prevent drunk drivers from ever getting behind the wheel. Since successfully passing legislation that enacted the maximum blood alcohol content level of .08, I have continued to support promising anti-drunk driving technologies to make them unobtrusive, reliable and affordable.”
