Drunk Driving

My heart goes out to the family of Carol Ragsdale who died Saturday morning in Mishawaka by another drunk driver.

What can be done? I wish this nightmare on no one.

There are a few campaigns to help through Mothers Against Drunk Drivers.  One is an ignition interlock for convicted DUI offenders.  To support this campaign you can go here and have a pre-written letter (one that you can edit) sent to:

  • our Governor
  • our Senators
  • our State Representatives

Also, the  Automotive Coalition for Traffic Safety (ACTS) and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) are searching for ways to develop an in-vehicle alcohol detection system.  More information can be found here: DADSS

I’m actively looking into what else can be done by me and you RIGHT NOW!

    I didn’t know Patrick but I have been touched by your website. I sent the letter and forwarded it to my friends. I just wanted to let you know that you are a strong woman. May God be with you and your children.

    I also sent the letter in hopes of something or someone to do something about bicycle safety. My heart goes out to you and your kids. I didn’t know Patrick but by reading this website it sounds like he was a blessing to everyone that knew him. May god bless you and your family.
