Mothers Against Drunk Driving and the Washtenaw County Medical Society are hosting a panel discussion tonight on drunk driving.


The two organizations have brought in experts from the prosecutor's office, local law enforcment, and other groups to talk about the problem.  Brad Uren is the president of the Washtenaw County Medical Society.  He says drunk driving is a problem everywhere.

"We certainly see it locally.  Working in the emergency department, I encounter drunk drivers and the aftermath far more than I'd like to."

The discussion will start at 7 and is being held at the Ann Arbor City Club.
