Woman charged with third PCA offence in three months in Sydney

A woman is due to face court today charged with drink driving for the third time since May 2018, after she allegedly ran a red light in Sydney CBD yesterday, NSW Police say.

About 5.45am (Friday 17 August 2018), the 36-year-old woman was travelling along Goulburn Street when she drove through a red traffic light at the intersection of Pitt Street.

The driver – who was the sole occupant of the vehicle – was pulled over and it was alleged she was unable to produce her driver’s licence.

She underwent a roadside breath test which returned a positive result. The driver was arrested by officers from Sydney City Police Area Command and taken to Day Street Police Station.

A subsequent breath analysis returned an alleged result of 0.205.

The driver was taken to Sydney Hospital for testing and admitted for an assessment, before being returned to Day Street Police Station.

She was charged with not stop at stop line at red light, drive with High Range PCA (second and subsequent offence), and drive while disqualified (second and subsequent offence).

The woman was refused bail to appear at Parramatta Bail Court via AVL later today (Saturday 18 August 2018).
