MADD candlelight vigil to honor those lost, injured, and serving

Posted:

Mothers Against Drunk Driving remembers those injured and lost to drunk driving.
 
Wednesday night a candlelight vigil was held at the School of Mines in Rapid City to raise awareness for drunk driving.

Lila Doud, President of the Pennington County Chapter of MADD says they also honored local law enforcement.

Doud says MADD does work because the number of DUI's and drunk driving accidents has declined this year.

"I just loved it when a highway patrolman came up to me a week or so ago and he said they set up a check point and he said there was only one DUI arrest. That makes me feel really good, you know people are not maybe drinking and driving," says Doud.
 
Wednesday nights ceremony featured keynote speaker Craig Tiezen as well as testimonials from those injured in accidents by drunk drivers.
