Babysitter Charged with DWI and Child Endangerment

According to police, a Long Island woman was arrested and charged with drunk driving after she crashed into a car and drove away – leaving behind her two nieces and their two friends, who had jumped out seeking help after asking the driver to pull over. Read the complete story from Newsday.

MADD believes that driving under the influence of alcohol or other drugs is criminal and irresponsible. Having a child in the car elevates this criminal act to child abuse. Read MADD’s child endangerment report, Every Child Deserves a Designated Driver.
