Mothers Against Drunk Driving is urging law enforcement in Orlando to crack down on drunk driving, according to the Orlando Sentinel. The organization held a press conference at the Florida Highway Patrol’s headquarters in Orlando.
“When you mix driving and being impaired, it’s a recipe for disaster,” says Osceola County Sheriff Bob Hansell. There is typically in an increase in drunk driving around the holidays. According to MADD director Yolanda Larson, drunk drivers killed 774 people in Florida in 2010 and 11,000 nationally.
“There’s a face behind each number, and a family behind each victim,” said Larson. “Lot of people are driving anyway, with suspended or revoked licenses.”
