MADD Helping Police at DUI Roadblocks?

Posted by Lawrence Taylor on August 8th, 2005

From today’s news:

DOVER- The sixth week of Delaware’s "Checkpoint Strikeforce" campaign resulted in 22 arrests for DUI charges as well as the arrest of one man who is accused of trying to run down two volunteers from Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD). 

According to police reports, the driver refused to obey several police commands to stop the vehicle and roll down his window. According to the police, the driver then tried to flee the checkpoint and in the process nearly ran over two members of Delaware’s MADD chapter who were assisting police at the checkpoint….. 

I hope the two MADD mothers weren’t too frightened, but what I really want to know is:  When did MADD start "assisting" police administer DUI roadblocks?
