MADD-Georgia Receives State Grant

The Georgia affiliate of Mothers Against Drunk Driving has received $156,624 from the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety (GOHS) for the 2021 grant year, according to a press release.

MADD Georgia will use the funds to continue to offer educational programs for prevention and awareness of impaired driving and underage drinking with its Power of Parents and Power of You(th) programs.

The grant provides much-needed funding to reduce the occurrence of drunk and drugged driving throughout the state by providing DUI prevention initiatives for law enforcement, military, educational, and community groups.

MADD will also utilize these resources to support GOHS campaigns such as Hands Across the Border, Click It or Ticket, and law enforcement recognition events, including MADD Georgia’s Annual Golden Shield Honors. MADD Georgia program staff serves as a team member on the state’s Impaired Driving and Young Adult Driving Task Forces.

The grant period for this award is through Sept. 30, 2021.

What is the Victim Impact Panel Class?

The Victim Impact Panel was designed to help DUI and drug offenders, caught driving under the influence, realize the impact their decisions have on the lives of those around them. It provides a glimpse into the lives of those affected by DUI accidents, the effects on the family and friends, and the lasting future effects victims live with every day.

Before getting behind the wheel after having a few, consider the many reasons why you should not.

A-1 is a Georgia-approved driving school offering Victim Impact Panels (VIP) courses at our 19 locations in Atlanta.

We offer the two-hour program for $55.00 per session with a certificate of completion.
