Woman blows seven times legal alcohol limit with kids in car

An Adelaide woman has recorded a blood-alcohol level more than seven times the legal limit while driving with two children in her car.

The 30-year-old was stopped at suburban Salisbury East on Sunday afternoon and blew 0.365.

Police said because two children were in the car, the Department for Child Protection had been notified about the incident.

Officers were also baffled why a sober adult passenger, who had a full licence, wasn't behind the wheel.

The driver was reported for drink driving and two counts of drink driving with a child under 16 in the car.

Her licence was suspended for 12 months and she will be summonsed to appear in court at a later date.

The car will also be impounded for 28 days.
