Woman on suspended licence caught drink-driving with child

A woman has been charged with high-range drink driving with a child in the car in Sydney’s south west.

Police pulled over the woman’s Holden Caprice on Flushcombe Road in Blacktown around 10.45am on Wednesday after detecting her speeding.

Officers spoke to the 28-year-old woman and noticed she had a four-year-old boy in a child-seat in the back of the car.


“The woman was unable to produce a licence and subsequent checks revealed she was allegedly suspended from driving in Queensland two years earlier,” NSW Police said.

The woman was then subjected to a roadside breath test, which returned a positive result.

She was arrested and taken to Merrylands Police Station, where a breath analysis returned an alleged reading of 0.214.

During a search, police also allegedly located methamphetamine in the woman’s possession.

She was charged with high-range PCA, drive while suspended, and possess prohibited drug.

The woman is due to appear in Blacktown Local Court on Tuesday 2 February 2021.

Police said a child at risk notification has been made.
