About three in every ten Americans will be involved in an alcohol-related crash at some time in their lives.
Texas ranks number one in alcohol-related crashes.
Underage drinking costs the state $5.5 billion a year, including medical costs, property damage and loss of life.
In 2006, 276 Texans under the age of 21 died in alcohol-related crashes.
"If we're okay with that, then we shouldn't be doing anything different in Texas, but we don't think Texans are okay with that," president of Mothers Against Drunk Driving, Laura Dean-Mooney said.
"I as a native Texan am not happy about that. We need to keep our kids safe, we need to keep the population safe."
