Police nab drunk mum driving through Sydney with car full of kids

A woman has allegedly been caught driving drunk through Sydney’s south-west with three children in the back seat.

Police said officers from the Joint Traffic Task Force stopped the woman’s Volvo SUV after she went to perform a u-turn on the Hume Highway near Liverpool just after 8am on Sunday.

The officers spoke with the driver, a woman aged 44, and subjected her to a roadside breath test.


Three children, aged between nine and 11 were also in the vehicle, along with another woman, police said.

The 44-year-old female driver allegedly returned a positive reading and was arrested for the purpose of a breath analysis.

She was conveyed to Liverpool Police Station where she allegedly returned a high-range breath analysis reading of 0.183 which is almost four times the legal limit.

The woman was charged with high-range drink-driving and her licence was suspended.

She was given conditional bail to appear before Liverpool Local Court on Wednesday 13 July.
