Port Lincoln drunk driver returns breath test almost five times the legal limit

A woman has lost her licence after being caught drink driving and returning a breath test almost five times over the legal limit on Friday afternoon.

At about 12.50pm on Friday, November 30, police stopped a white Subaru sedan on Dublin Street for a roadside breath test.

The 47-year-old woman allegedly produced a blood alcohol reading of 0.230.

The Port Lincoln woman was issued a 12-month instant loss of license and her vehicle was impounded for 28 days.

She will appear in the Port Lincoln Magistrates Court at a later date.
