A scorned wife who drove her husband off the road on the NSW Mid North coast has avoided jail.

Sonya Ruprecht has captured on dashcam ramming a campervan at Crowdy Head in December 2016.

Appearing in court on Tuesday, Ms Ruprecht claimed her judgement was overshadowed by her husband's long-running affair after 34 years of marriage.
