Jim Dodson Law is a proud supporter of MADD® and the work it continues to do to make the roads safer for everyone. For more than 30 years, Mothers Against Drunk Driving® has helped save lives by building awareness about the dangers of drunk driving. Prior to 1980, having a few drinks and then driving was something many people did without much thought. In fact, some would say it was part of American life and culture. With the amazing efforts of MADD® this has changed, and today, "designated driver" is a household word.
According to Florida DMV records there were 33,625 DUI convictions in Florida 2011. Jim Dodson, an attorney for more than 25 years, has helped people who have lost loved ones in car accidents due to drunk driving. He has seen the devastation and because of this is passionate about MADD's® mission. "I am proud to join MADD® in the fight to eliminate drunk and impaired driving. Drunk driving is a voluntary act and 100% preventable. We are well past the time when the thought was "it's okay, I've only had a few drinks". I stand with the families and victims of these tragic crimes," he said. Dodson was the Former Chairman of MADD's® Pinellas County Advisory Board.

The Founding of Mothers Against Drunk Driving®
Founded in 1980 by a heartbroken mother who lost her beloved 13-year old daughter, Mother's Against Drunk Driving® (MADD) is the nation's largest nonprofit working to protect families from drunk driving and underage drinking. With the help of those who want a safer future, MADD's Campaign to Eliminate Drunk Driving® will help prevent these dangers on our roads. MADD® has grown into an unstoppable force that has been credited with saving more than 300,000 lives.
