Students Against Drunk Driving

East Lansing, MI: There's a new chapter of Mothers Against Drunk Driving on the Michigan State University campus, but it wasn't established by any mothers.

Amy Gnotek, MSU senior, knows all too well the damage drunk drivers cause. She's lost two high school friends, an aunt and uncle in separate drunk driving accidents. That's why she's organized Spartans Against Drunk Driving: "It's just hard, and I know it's touched a lot of lives a lot of families." Source.

Amy says the 40,000 students at her school are known for partying. East Lansing Police Chief Tom Wibert agrees. The department has reached a 15-year high on the number of drunk driving arrests, and now he's helping these students work on prevention.

Go, Amy!
