Police shock at Casino woman, 14 times the legal limit

A WOMAN will face Casino Local Court in February after being caught driving on the wrong side of the road, 14 times the legal alcohol-breath limit.  

In an incident which Richmond Local Area Command police described as "remarkable", the 45-year-old Casino woman was seen driving in the opposite direction of traffic at Johnston St, Casino, yesterday at about 6pm.  

A member of the public stopped the car, removed the keys from the ignition and called the police.  

Police arrived, discovering the woman was unlicensed.   

She failed a roadside alcohol breath test and was taken to Casino Police Station, where she recorded 0.332 grams of alcohol in every 210L breath.  

Police said it was "a reading almost 14 times higher that the legal limit for an unlicensed driver."  

The woman was issued a Field Court Attendance Notice for High Range PCA, Drive Unlicensed, Drive Unregistered Vehicle and Drive Uninsured Vehicle.  

Her car keys were confiscated.
