MICHIGAN — There may be a new license plate option for drivers in the state of Michigan.

On Wednesday, Mothers Against Drunk Driving showed their support for a bill that will help raise money to fight against drunk driving.

The bill, presented by Senator Tonya Schutmaker, would help pay for MADD services to drunk driving victims and advocate for stronger laws, according to a release.

“These license plates will help spread MADD’s message to always find a safe and sober ride home, as well as contribute to our mission of serving victims of this completely preventable crime.”

Mothers Against Drunk Driving was founded in 1980 by a mother whose daughter was killed by a drunk driver. Organizers said it’s the nation’s largest nonprofit working to end drunk driving, help fight drugged driving, support the victims of these violent crimes and prevent underage drinking.
