Mothers Against Drunk Driving is a nationally well-known association. It has been effective in its ability to reach out to drivers everywhere. Its’ importance to society has been positive and effective. Not only does it promote awareness about the fatality of drunk driving, but also underage drinking, and drinking responsibly. They are able to educate people and in doing so invoked changes in the attitudes of people and invoked changes in law. In addition to all these accomplishments, Mothers Against Drunk Drivingrepresents a shared ideal. The organization allows for like-minded people to come together sharing their experiences not only with each other, but also with their communities. It is this sense of camaraderie that makes the organization cohesive enough to inspire and make the changes that they want to see.
