MAKE JOE BIDEN COMMIT IF HE WANTS YOUR VOTE
EIGHT WEEKS LEFT BEFORE THE 2020 VOTE
September 11th, 2020 - With just eight weeks left before the election, Democratic Presidential nominee Joe Biden and his vice-president nominee Kamala Harris are tweeting and campaigning constantly to get people's vote. Throughout his life, Joe Biden has had a history of DUI related incidents in his family including the death of his first wife and daughter by a DUI driver and the arrests of his youngest brother Frank and niece Caroline for DUI. He cannot change the past but he certainly can commit to changing the future. Recent controversy that alleged he doesn't consider DUI a felony offense whether or not it relates to illegal immigrants highlights a clear lack of understanding with regard to the epidemic of DUI tragedies across our nation and indeed in California, the worst state in the country for DUI. We ask that you tweet Joe Biden and tweet Kamala Harris your support to end DUI tragedies and call for Biden to make a public commitment and pledge to make DUI a felony in every state.
TAKE ACTION TO STOP GAVIN NEWSOM APPROVING LEGISLATIVE BILL AB3234
SUPPORT MOTHERS AGAINST DRUNK DRIVING'S INITIATIVE
Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) needs your help to urge Governor Newsom to veto legislation that would allow for an unlimited number of plea deals for drunk drivers. The legislation, AB 3234, would allow for drunk and drugged drivers, regardless of first or subsequent offense, to enter into a diversion program or negotiate a plea deal.
We must ensure that those who drive drunk or impaired by other drugs are held accountable for their deadly choice. In 2019 more than 10,000 people were killed in drunk driving crashes. AB 3234 undermines the seriousness of this violent, completely preventable crime.

THE WAY PEOPLE VIEW DRUNK DRIVING
An excerpt comparing the USA with other countries on DUI statistics.
"When people don't view drunk driving as a bad thing, they won't stop others from doing it. They allow friends and family members to get behind the wheel of a vehicle after they have a few drinks. As a result, they contribute to the problem. In many of the countries with low drunk driving rates, drinking and driving is not acceptable behavior. If someone witnesses you trying to drive drunk, then they will take your keys away. There's also less peer pressure to drive home drunk. In countries like the USA, some individuals fear what others will think of them if they don't drive after a few drinks. They don't want to seem uncool or uptight. To make drunk driving less of a problem, it's necessary to change the way people look at the issue."
