(( On the eve of the busiest travel holiday of the year, Mother Nature isnt helping.
Some 500 Americans will likely die in car accidents this Thanksgiving weekend half will involve alcohol slippery roads and foggy conditions will only make the situation worse.
But despite the danger, one of the leading groups in the fight against drunk driving says, even in good weather, Americas have simply stopped caring.
KAROLYN NUNNALLEE, PRESIDENT, MADD The nation has become complacent. Theyre not taking the issue of drunk driving seriously enough, theyre not passing life saving legislation.
According Madds report card, the states with the least progress are some of the least populated: Montana, and the Dakotas, all rating a dismal D plus.
But not much better are states like Connecticut, Massachusetts and the District of Columbia, with an all-too-below-average C minus.
Tops on the list California, the only state to get an A. KAROLYN NUNNALLEE, PRESIDENT, MADD This crime is one hundred percent preventable. We can all stop it if we all work together to save lives and prevent injuries.
Part of the problem is a change in the national spotlight. Its been re-focused, the group claims, on other issues such as school shootings and workplace violence.
And talk of car safety has been more about air bags and road rage than drinking behind the wheel. COWAN ON CAM:
Still, there have been improvements since 1982, deaths on the roadway due to drunk driving have dropped by 30 percent. DUI arrests are down 25 percent.
Deadly numbers still -- that could shoot up again if attention is diverted for too long. Lee Cowan, CBS News, Washington.))
