Winning presentations will be published in a booklet and given to lawmakers and community leaders. The Law Offices of Michael A.

Drunk driving continues to be a problem affecting all age groups. It can destroy lives and kill people. It helps to start educating drivers at a young age about the dangers of driving under the influence. Hopefully, this knowledge and awareness will save lives.
