A female driver from Figtree who was allegedly involved in a series of minor traffic bingles before recording a blood alcohol reading of five times the legal limit will face court later this year.
According to police, the driver left an address at Woonona on Saturday and travelled to the Balgownie area.
Wollongong Police District duty officer Dave Williamson said the 45-year-old female was involved in at least five minor motor vehicle collisions, starting from about 12.15pm.
She was eventually stopped at Tucker Avenue, Balgownie about 1pm.
The driver underwent a roadside breath test and returned a positive reading for alcohol.
She was then arrested and taken to Wollongong Police Station.
While there she submitted to a breath analysis test, and allegedly blew a high-range reading of 0.250.
Police say she will be charged with a number of offences, including high-range PCA, and will appear in Wollongong Local Court on November 10.
Her licence will also be suspended, pending the court outcome.
