Woman in court on third drink driving charge in three months

A WOMAN will appear in a Sydney court today, charged with drink driving for the third time in as many months.

The 36-year-old caught the attention of police after allegedly running a red light at the intersection of Goulburn and Pitt streets in the city’s CBD early on Friday morning.

Officers intercepted and arrested the woman after she allegedly failed a roadside breath test. Police said the woman was also unable to produce her driver’s licence because she had been disqualified from driving.


The woman was taken to Day Street Police Station where it’s alleged she returned a subsequent breath analysis reading of 0.205.

That’s more than four times the legal limit.

The alleged serial offender was taken to Sydney Hospital for testing and admitted for an assessment, before being returned to Day Street Police Station.

She has since been charged with not stop at stop line at red light, drive with High Range PCA (second and subsequent offence), and drive while disqualified (second and subsequent offence).

The woman was remanded in custody overnight and due to appear in Parramatta Bail Court via video link later today.
