Policies created as a result of MADD influenceThe influence of MADD creates successful policy implementation, for example, Child endangerment law. This law meaning that an individual who drives under the influence of alcohol with a child in the automobile is child endangerment. A parent willfully renders inappropriate care endangering his or her morals and health resulting in child abuse. The implementation of Ignition interlocks for convicted drunk drivers in some states have been put
5into effect. These devices can prevent a vehicle from operating for a drunk driver. The studies indicate that the use of these ignition interlocks can reduce second offenses by 67% (MADD. Org, 2013). This student personally believes the interlock program is a great idea, to prevent drunk drivers from hitting or hurting someone else.Another policy MADD initiates is the strict enforcement of Driving under the Influence (DUI); and Driving While Intoxicated laws thathas federal support. The Crime Victims’ Rights Constitutional Amendment making sure victims of drunk driving cases get an opportunity to be heard in court. The Drunk Driver Repeat offender Prevention Act, is because of MADD actions (MADD. Org, 2013).

A majority of other problems experienced from the implementation of policies was the reduction of alcohol consumption. This factor was great however the rise of domestic violence among households was not. The second and third policies, is establishing in the legal aspects, attempting to reduce externalities by giving penalties for alcohol abuse. For example, jailing
6abusive drinkers, and firing employees for drinking-on- the -job and reestablishing educational programs to allow individuals to choose between acceptable and unacceptable uses of alcohol(National Council on Economic Education, 2013). The effect of Social Policies on Human Service DeliveryThe moral efforts of Mothers against Drunk Driving had a significant impact on social policies today. MADD is the laypeople that formulate policies upon the basis of the perceptions of how society should be against drinking and driving. The pressure of MADD on social policies
