For over twenty years, the Community Against Drunken Driving (CADD) has been at the forefront of the battle for greater cognizance of the drunk driving problem. Road accidents are the cause of the most deaths in India after Cancer and Tuberculosis. Founded by activist Prince Singhal in 2001, CADD has initiated many public campaigns against drunk driving, like the “Don’t Drink and Drive” movement, reaching out to thirty crore people across twenty-five states. Their campaigns, aimed variously at parents, schoolteachers, truck drivers, bar and pub proprietors, and educational institutions, act toward a comprehensive solution to the issue. CADD’s push for legislative interventions has yielded many successful results including an amendment to the Motor Vehicle Act to raise the fine for drunk driving and the inclusion of warnings against drunk driving on bottled liquor labels.
