A THIRROUL woman driving with a suspended licence while her son was a passenger in the car has been charged with high-range drink driving.
The 44-year-old woman’s Toyota Hilux was stopped by police on the Prince’s Highway at Waterfall about 4.35pm on Friday and she was given a roadside breath test, which returned a positive result.
The woman was arrested and taken to Sutherland Police Station, where a breath analysis returned an alleged reading of 0.182. She was charged with high-range driving and driving a motor vehicle whilst her licence was suspended.
As a suspended driver, the woman is subject to a blood alcohol limit of 0.02. The breath analysis reading allegedly returned by the woman put her at over nine times her legal limit.
The woman was granted conditional bail to appear at Sutherland Local Court on Thursday April 30.
Police have completed a child at risk notification to Family and Community Services.
