An unemployed Lepperton woman lost her job and her freedom at night for three months after driving over the drink-driving limit for the third time.

Judge David McKegg commented that Deanne Kay Meyer, in her 30s, had lost her job as a result of going to her caregiver's job drunk.

"Alcohol is not your friend," he told her. Meyer was disqualified from driving for a year.
