MADD ATMS NOW IN ALL REGINA LIQUOR STORES

Automated teller machines (ATMs) in support of Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) are now in all seven Regina liquor stores.

“Getting behind the wheel while impaired is the wrong decision and one that too often leads to tragedy for families,” Minister responsible for the Saskatchewan Liquor and Gaming Authority Donna Harpauer said.  “Having these ATMs in SLGA’s Regina liquor stores is a great way to help MADD spread that message.”

All fees collected from the ATMs will be used by MADD to support local chapter activities.

“The funds we generate through these ATMs will help raise awareness in the province about the danger of driving impaired,” MADD Canada CEO Andrew Murie said.  “We appreciate SLGA’s support and commitment to promote the responsible use of beverage alcohol through this initiative.”

SLGA has long been a supporter of MADD.  Earlier this year, SLGA provided $25,000 to help deliver multi-media presentations to Saskatchewan high school students regarding the consequences of drinking and driving.  SLGA and MADD are also among the partners in the Report Impaired Drivers (RID) program.  RID encourages people to call 911 if they suspect an impaired driver.
