The Herald reported:
A woman arrested for drink-driving with two small children in the car had one of the highest breath-alcohol levels recorded in New Zealand – and might have consumed the equivalent of 25 drinks or more.
The 29-year-old was described by police as an “incredibly dangerous driver”. She blew 1568 micrograms per litre of breath – nearly four times the 400mcg legal limit for adults.
It is a miracle she did not crash. A blood alcohol level of that level, while in charge of kids, is almost rounds for proven neglect – even if she wasn’t driving. But to drive with your kids in the car, while plastered like that, is appalling. She should lose access to the kids before they get killed.
