Reminder: Don’t Drink and Drive. There was one arrest of a drunk driver in Saugus who was involved in an accident with her child in the vehicle. The mother was arrested for child endangerment and drunk driving. Please remember that drinking and driving do not mix. If you are going to drink please designate a sober driver. A few drinks and a bad choice are not worth a lifetime of regret.
