“The right of citizens to petition government was rarely exercised as in the 1980′s by Doris Aiken, leader of RID, to deter drunken driving. Thousands are alive today because of her prodding of government to combat this menace.” Leslie G.Foschio, Federal Magistrate, former NYS DMV Commissioner.
“Stunningly, against all odds, her voice was heard. The results . . . fatal crashes during bar hours decreased by 35.6% between 1980-1983.”
