MADD mothers upset over GTA IV drunk-driving content

There are a lot of other things to be concerned with in GTA IV rather than drunk driving but MADD, Mothers Against Drunk Driving, is speaking about about the drunk-driving content in the most anticipated game of 2008.

In a statement release on April 30th, MADD said that nearly 13,500 people die in drunk driving crashes and another half a million are injured due to alcohol-related accidents.

“This is why MADD is extremely disappointed by the decision of the manufacturers of the game Grand Theft Auto IV to include a game module where players have to drive drunk. Drunk driving is not a game and it is not a joke. Drunk driving is a choice, a violent crime and it is also 100 percent preventable. MADD is calling on the Entertainment Software Ratings Board to reclassify Grand Theft Auto IV as an Adults Only game, a step up from the current rating of Mature and for the manufacturer to consider a stop in distribution ““ if not out of responsibility to society then out of respect for the millions of victims/survivors of drunk driving.”
