There is no evidence that Candy Lightner has ever received a DWI

or DUI. However, she has disagreed with the neo-prohibition

orientation that has become prominent in Mothers Against Drunk

Driving (MADD).

Candy Lightner left MADD and is concerned that the organization

that she herself created is changing its focus. "It has become far

more neo-prohibitionist than I ever wanted or envisioned," she

says. "I didn't start MADD to deal with alcohol. I started MADD to

deal with the issue of drunk driving." Lightner emphasized the

importance of distinguishing between drinking alcohol on one hand

and drunk driving on the other.
