The mission of Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) is to end drunk driving, help fight drugged driving, support the victims of these violent crimes, and prevent underage drinking.
MADD’s Court Monitoring Program enlists and trains court monitors to observe and document what happens in the courtroom during drunk driving case proceedings. Court monitors track results and identify inconsistencies on how drunk driving cases are handled and resolved. MADD shares this information with law enforcement, judges, prosecutors, public defenders and, if necessary, the media, to help ensure appropriate actions. https://www.madd.org/get-involved/volunteer/
The goals of MADD’s Court Monitoring Program are to enhance transparency, accountability and to promote appropriate sentencing within the criminal justice system for drunk driving cases.
