Seventh Grader Urges President Obama to Deal with Drunk Driving

The Augusta Chronicle hosted a contest urging middle school kids to write a letter to new President Barack Obama about their ideas for improving our nation. An 8th grader named Anna Rutti wrote: “Another concern of mine is driving under the influence. Innocent people die every day because of drunk drivers. I would like you to make stricter laws about drinking while driving.”

MADD shares Anna’s concerns and hopes its Campaign to Eliminate Drunk Driving is a priority for the new administration.
