Blow & Drive Interlock, Corp (OTCQB: BDIC) is pleased to announce that it has participated as a data provider to Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) as a part of their new 2017 report in ignition interlock devices. We are proud to be among the select group of only eleven ignition interlock providers who have collectively stopped an estimated 2.3 million attempts to drive drunk since 2006. Over 350,000 driving attempts were stopped in 2016 alone. According to the National Transportation Administration’s Department’s Office of Behavioral Research, each of these drivers would have had an estimated 6.75x greater chance of crash risk. We are always thrilled to highlight to shareholders that they are part of a company that is literally saving lives.
According to MADD’s report, “Every state in the nation has an ignition interlock law of some kind. MADD’s goal is to for every state to have the most effective ignition interlock law, which is one that applies to every drunk driver after the first offense. When MADD’s Campaign started, only New Mexico had an all-offender ignition interlock law. Today, 28 states and the District of Columbia require ignition interlocks for offenders with a .08 blood alcohol concentration (BAC) and above after the first offense. MADD is committed to working with the other 22 states to pass similar laws, and to help every state optimize its laws and expand the use of technology to stop the tragedies caused by drunk driving.”
