Diana David probably never thought she’d become an active member of MADD — Mothers Against Drunk Driving. But that was before march 21st, 2001. She was on her way to a bowling alley, her car motoring behind a pick-up truck when she noticed a van driven by a woman veering toward her from the opposite direction.
It appears Diana David and other members of MADD will continue to be busy speaking out. A year after Melanie’s Law took effect, the Registry of Motor Vehicles says the number of repeat DUI cases is down, but the number of first-time offenders is up.
