It doesn't matter where you happen to live in Massachusetts. We got another ridiculous reminder this weekend that driving while intoxicated simply cannot be tolerated. Luckily, in this particular incident, which occurred in Boston, no one was killed or injured.

Massachusetts State Police are reminding motorists to always drive sober for their safety and for the safety of all that share our roadways, after a driver jumped onto a median, took out a traffic signal pole, and generally made a big mess.
