San Diego California DUI cops are MADDened by victims of drunk drivers so they're instituting a program with the idea of having parents get involved

San Diego California DUI cops are MADDened by victims of drunk drivers so they're instituting a program with the idea of having parents get involved to prevent underage drinking.

"Power of Parents, It’s Your Influence™ " is a MADD-sponsored DUI program providing mothers and fathers tools and tips to have what the organization called a potentially life-saving conversation with kids regarding alcohol problems.

Parents are the #1 influence in a child’s decision regarding alcohol and drug use.

The program offers techniques and tips to improve communication between parents and their offspring. The guidelines could substantially reduce the chance a child will drink booze before the age of 21.

Every year, MADD claims alcohol kills more youths than all other illicit drugs combined, contributing to about six thousand fatalities involving underage people.

Talk to kids and make them know that underage drinking can have some very real consequences, San Diego DUI lawyers agree.
