Qld mum drives kids five times over limit

A Queensland mother has been caught drink driving almost five times over the legal limit with her three children in the car.

The woman, 42, was pulled over at Miles on the Western Darling Downs late Wednesday afternoon and allegedly blew 0.23 per cent in a roadside breath test.

Police said she was travelling with two children under 12 and a third teenage passenger.

The woman was charged with high-range drink driving and wilful damage, her licence was suspended and she was expected to appear in the Chinchilla Magistrates Court on March 1.

Local police sergeant Werner Crous said it was the highest blood alcohol reading in the Miles area for a long time and was concerning considering the time of day.

"All we ask is that if driving, be responsible and look after yourself and others," Sgt Crous said.

"We have seen fatalities right across the country caused by people driving who are affected by alcohol and drugs - please do not take the chance."
