Campervan driver busted nearly 5x over legal alcohol limit

A 71-year-old woman has been caught driving a campervan almost 5 times over the legal alcohol limit.

The woman was arrested on Wednesday after officers were alerted to the woman struggling to park her VW campervan in the carpark of a shopping centre on the Pacific Highway at Nambucca Heads.

Upon arrival, officers allegedly found an open champagne bottle in the vehicle’s door drink holder.


The woman was taken to Nambucca Police Station where she returned an alleged breath analysis of 0.233.

She was charged with high-range drink driving and is due to appear at Macksville Local Court on 13 September.
