An Ulverstone woman has been charged with a high range drink driving offence after being allegedly found driving at more than five times over the alcohol limit.
Sergeant Nick Patten said about 12.45pm on Tuesday, police observed a small silver hatchback being driven erratically between Latrobe and Ulverstone.
"Police intercepted the vehicle on Main Street in Ulverstone and transported the female driver to the Ulverstone Police Stateion for a breath analysis. The woman returned a blood alcohol reading of 0.268, more than five times the legal limit," Sergeant Patten said.
The woman has been disqualified from driving for 12 months and would appear in court to face further charges.
He said police would like to speak to anyone who saw a small silver hatchback travelling between Latrobe and Ulverstone between 12.15pm and 12.45pm on Tuesday, November 5.
"Police would like to remind motorists that driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs puts themselves and others in danger of serious injury and death," he said.
"I urge all motorists to be safe on the roads and never combine alcohol and driving.
"In the lead up to the festive season police will be conducting more random alcohol and drug testing sites across the state to remove dangerous drivers from the roads."
