Woman with young children busted five times over limit

A WOMAN with two children in the car has been busted for allegedly driving more than five times the legal limit between Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast.

Around 6pm police were notified by members of the public who believed the woman to be adversely affected while shopping in a convenience store on Astley Parade at North Lakes.

Quick thinking members of the public detained the woman, preventing her from returning to the car until police arrived on the scene.

Police said they located a five-year-old and a four-year-old child in a car which had been allegedly driven by the woman from her home address to the store.

Police located the woman on and conducted a breath test where she allegedly returned a positive result of .256 precent.

A 28-year-old North Lakes woman has been charged with driving under the influence of liquor.

She is expected to appear in the Pine Rivers Magistrates Court on November 6.
