TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) -- Mothers Against Drunk Driving is pushing for new legislation to be passed this session.

This week the group is asking lawmakers to pass House Bill 949 and Senate Bill 918, requiring ignition interlocks for all DUI offenders.

Tallahassee residents Tracey and Marvin Biggins also stand behind the bill.

Five years ago their 9-year-old son Tyler, his best friend Vincent Vickers and best friend’s mother Shakeila Vickers all lost their lives at the hands of a drunk driver.

"I often tell people, we didn't choose MADD. MADD chose us. Anyway that we can help, help save the lives of others and have families not have to go through what we're going through. It's a great cause,” said Tracey Biggins.

Next weekend, the Biggins will host their annual basketball tournament in honor of Tyler.
