Police have hailed a good samaritan who called to alert them that an allegedly drunk woman was swerving dangerously along an Auckland road with two children in the car on Monday.

The 29-year-old woman was nearly four times over the breath alcohol limit, police said.

The car eventually pulled into a residential address. Police breath-tested the woman at the address and found she had 1568 micrograms of alcohol per litre of breath. The legal limit for people aged over 20 is 400mcg.
