Mum’s drink drive charge

A 36-YEAR-OLD woman will be charged on summons after she was caught drink driving with three children in her car.
The woman was driving in Tynong on Sunday night, on her way to Southbank, when she was intercepted by police after they received several phone calls about an erratic driver heading west on the Princes Freeway in the vicinity of Warragul and Garfield.
Police said that after officers allegedly observed a grey Peugeot sedan she was driving veering across both city bound lanes, they intercepted the driver on the freeway.
The woman, who had three children, aged three, four and eight-years old in the car, returned a breath test result of 0.179 per cent blood alcohol content.
Sergeant Nigel Atkins from the Cardinia Highway Patrol Unit said he was dismayed at the irresponsible actions of this driver.
“This is totally unacceptable behaviour,” he said.
“It impacts on other members of the public and it’s extremely lucky no-one was injured.”
The motorist is expected to be charged on summons with driving under the influence, manner dangerous and exceeding the prescribed concentration of alcohol.
