A Canberra woman has been charged with high-range drink driving after being stopped by police on the Hume Highway.
Just before 7 pm on Saturday (23 July), officers were conducting speed checks along the highway at Goulburn when they detected a Hyundai Getz allegedly going more than 130 km/h in a 110 km/h zone.
Police stopped the vehicle and spoke with the 31-year-old driver from Kambah. She was subjected to a roadside breath test, which police said returned a positive result.
She was arrested and taken to Goulburn Police Station where she underwent a secondary breath analysis.
Police said this returned an alleged reading of 0.258, more than five times the legal limit.
The woman was charged with driving with high-range PCA and her licence was suspended.
She’s scheduled to appear at Goulburn Local Court on 24 August.
