Man charged with high-range drink driving with three kids in car

A child at risk notification has been submitted to the Department of Family and Community Services after a man was caught allegedly high-range drink driving with three young children in the car.

The 48-year-old was pulled over by officers in Allambie Heights about 1.45am on New Years Day after they observed the man’s vehicle driving with its headlights off.

The man was submitted to a roadside breath test, which returned a positive result.


He was then taken to Dee Why Police Station where he returned an alleged breath analysis reading of 0.168, which is more than three times the legal limit.

The man was issued with a field court attendance notice for high-range PCA and his licence was suspended.

There were four passengers in the car at the time, including a woman and three children aged aged two, nine and 10.

The man is due to appear at Manly Local Court on Wednesday 6 February.
