Correction: "Mothers Against Drunk Drivers (MADD)" , it is actually Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD). In 1984, MADD changed its name from Mothers Against Drunk Drivers to Mothers Against Drunk Driving. This carefully considered change was made because MADD is opposed to the criminal act of drunk driving, not individuals.

Drinking and driving in Newfoundland is not so much a crime as it is an everyday lifestyle. Forget the TV ads, the speakers at schools, the alcohol-free graduation parties.....it's all a complete waste of time and money. We've been at that for 3 or 4 decades....nadda. Lock 'em up, fine the snot out of them, take their licenses away for good. When you're dealing with people who just aren't bright enough to figure it out, the only thing you can do is lay the hammer to them.
