Drunk, disqualified, kids in the back, crashing into a house

By johnboy - 5 September 2013 16

A 43-year-old Monash woman has been charged with multiple traffic offences after her vehicle, with two children inside, crashed into her garage yesterday afternoon (Wednesday, September 4).
The incident was reported around 3pm and Tuggeranong Patrol members, together with ACT Fire and Rescue, immediately responded.

On arrival police observed a black sedan that was in the driveway with damage to the front end and the drivers and passenger’s side airbags deployed. The driver and two children did not suffer any injuries.

The alleged offender, who is a current disqualified driver, was taken into custody and conveyed to the Tuggeranong Police Station.

The woman refused to provide a sample of breath for analysis and was then issued with an Immediate Suspension Notice. She was arrested and conveyed to the ACT Watch House and will appear before the ACT Magistrates Court on September 17 charged with drink driving, refusing to provide sample of breath and driving while disqualified.

The house sustained substantial damage to the front garage wall and door requiring ACT Fire and Rescue personnel to provide structural support.

Meanwhile, forty-four people were caught drink-driving on ACT roads last weekend (August 29 – 1 September), with 15 of those drivers being repeat offenders.

Eighteen drivers were issued with Immediate Suspension Notices with three drivers recording BAC levels almost four times over the limit.

Outta my way, I’m a lunatic…
Brooms with socks… of course, now it all makes sense!

Between you two and davo101, reading comprehension skills around here seem to have dropped remarkedly, and quickly. I guess it’s just a necessary precursor for a Liberal government.

So here, LMGTFY.

Maybe I am anaylsing it too much but to me that shows a complete disregard for her actions.

Or she’s a mother with a serious mental health issue, terrified of losing her children?

There but for His Noodly Appendage go all of us. Your high horses are brooms with socks for heads, and it’s abundantly clear where the other ends are inserted.

Obviously not terrified enough. She is lucky they weren’t hurt or killed.

I love the fact that we can discuss this sensibly without passing judgement.

(It does look pretty bad, though.)

Looks bad? It is bad. I think the most telling part of this whole story is the fact that the mother refused the breath test. Maybe I am anaylsing it too much but to me that shows a complete disregard for her actions.

looks like this loser will be a bit out-of-pocket.

insruance won’t cover the damage to her car due to the fact she was under the influence.

will the same apply to the house damage??

this of course assumes she has insurance of any type anyway

If she was drinking before 3, driving and picking up kids from school… yeah I think that’s a pretty safe bet that she has no insurance.

It’s also a pretty fair bet that you and I own the house and will have to pick up the repair bill.

Yep.

Let’s give her a baby bonu$ to pop out another one while we’re at it.

F*ck the house AND the car, I hope the cops called Child Protective Services to come and get the children out of her care.

If you can’t wait to have a drink, walk to pick the kids for sobbing out loud

Yep.

And with this sort of drinking problem, the kids probably should be out of her care.

Probably public housing, and they will immediately transfer her into a lovely new home, jumping the queue ahead of others who have been waiting, waiting, waiting…
