Gold Coast mother busted almost 10 x over alcohol limit

A Gold Coast woman has shocked authorities, delivering a blood alcohol reading of 0.48 per cent, nearly ten times the legal limit.

The 42-year-old mother was found passed out in her car in front of a Runaway Bay cafe in October, however intoxication tests have only just come back revealing the mind-blowing reading.

It’s believed it could be a new national record, with the woman’s drivers licence suspended while she awaits to front Southport Magistrates Court in January.


According to health professionals, most people are unconscious or dead before reaching a reading of 0.4.

The legal limit is 0.05.
