(WTNH) — Today is MADD’s National Rembrance day. If you do not know what MADD stands for, it is the Mother Against Drunk Driving and this year marks their 35th anniversary of MADD. They are a non-profit organization that was founded by a mother who’s daughter was killed by a drunk driver and since its inception, the organization has helped to cut the number of drunk driving fatalities each year in half.
