Drink driver more than seven times limit, South Australia

A woman has lost her licence after recording a blood alcohol reading more than seven times the legal limit at Salisbury East this afternoon.

Police pulled over the woman’s car on Main North Road, Salisbury East about 1.30pm on Sunday 12 April for a mobile driver test.

The driver, a 30-year-old Ingle Farm woman, recorded a blood alcohol reading of 0.365.

Also of concern to police, there were two children in the car, and police will be notifying the Department for Child Protection.

Officers couldn’t understand why a sober adult passenger in the car, who has a full licence, wasn’t given the keys to safely drive the family.

The driver was reported for drink driving and two counts of drink driving with a child under 16 in the car. She received a 12 month instant loss of licence and will be summonsed to appear in court at a later date.

The passenger drove the children home and the car will be impounded tomorrow for 28 days.
