Mum accused of being drunk during school drop off

A mother will face court, accused of being drunk behind the wheel during school drop-off.

Police say she was taking her three children to school at Picton, south west of Sydney, when pulled over for a breath test around 9am on Friday.

The 41-year-old allegedly returned a positive breath test and was arrested and taken to Picton Police Station.


At the station she underwent a breath analysis and returned a high range reading of 0.179, more than three-times the legal limit.

The woman will appear at Picton Local Court on Tuesday 13 June.

Police say three children aged 12, 9 and 8-years-old were passengers in the red Hyundai and were taken to school by a relative.
