ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Mothers Against Drunk Driving has joined Sen. Tom Udall (D-N.M.), Sen. Rick Scott (R-Fla.) and Rep. Debbie Dingell (D-Mich.) to unveil bipartisan legislation to help prevent drunk driving.
The Reduce Impaired Driving for Everyone (RIDE) Act promotes the research and development of advanced alcohol detection software. It will also create a path forward for the technology to be a requirement in new cars.
In New Mexico, there were 118 drunk driving deaths in 2018 – about 29% of traffic deaths in the state.
