Designate a Sober Driver Even When boating

Designate a Sober Driver Even When boating

MADD is most disheartened to read about yet another drunk boating fatality in the greater Omaha area.  Our support goes out to the family of the victim. Here at MADD we applaud the Douglas County Attorney for putting forth manslaughter.   http://www.wowt.com/home/headlines/58500297.html When a person makes the choice to drink and drive, any vehicle, over the legal limit that person simply must be held accountable. http://www.maddnebraska.org/tributes

In 2205, CBS Early Show did a report highlighting Drunk Boating. The Judge in this report was on the fore front and we can only hope our Douglas County Judges take the same hard look at Drunk Boating. http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2005/07/26/earlyshow/living/main711940.shtml

Here in Nebraska, MADD asks everyone to Designate a Sober Driver image712672gwhen making plans to engage in any recreational activity: Golfing, Boating, ATV, Hunting. 

Nationwide 40% of boating fatalities involved alcohol – that is 100% preventable.
