Lebanon Municipal Court Partners with Mothers Against Drunk Driving

The Lebanon Municipal Court proudly announces its collaboration with MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving).  Beginning in 2024, MADD will offer their Victim Impact Panel program at the Court, aimed at helping offenders of drunk and impaired driving to recognize and internalize the long-term effects of substance-impaired driving. The classes seek to create an empathy and understanding of the tragedy, leaving a permanent impression that leads to changes in thinking and behavior to prevent future offenses. The program, currently not offered in Warren County, prides itself on its research, partnerships, advocacy, and influence.  Participants will listen to survivors, victims, and MADD representatives speak about their personal experiences in the hopes to heal and educate.

Judge Martin E. Hubbell began ordering convicted impaired driving offenders in his court to attend one of these invaluable classes to give a broadening perspective.  “We are pleased to support this program and hope that it will have a lasting impact on those convicted of substance-impaired driving,” Judge Hubbell.

MADD, founded in 1980, continues to spearhead a worldwide movement focused on education, prevention and saving lives from drunk or impaired driving.
