DUI Offenders to Wash Cars for MADD

Posted in Drunk Driving

In Bristol, Tennessee, DUI offenders—clad in orange and white striped jumpsuits—will be washing cars to help raise money for Mothers Against Drunk Driving. The car wash at an Auto Zone store on Saturday August 29 costs $10 and the money goes to benefit the organization.

The Bristol Herald Courier reports that the Sullivan County Sheriff’s Office will transport offenders to the store, where their volunteer labor counts double toward their jail hours.

Sheriff Wayne Anderson said drunken driving offenses run the social and economic spectrum. He said there are between 50 and 100 inmates on any given day who are DUI offenders.

Anderson also said a similar project has been done before, and that the inmates “really enjoyed it. They felt like they were giving back.”
