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.

The lower drink-driving limits from December are:

Great - too much carnage on our roads.

Overkill - targets moderate drinkers, not the heavies

Still too little - make it zero tolerance.

Sensible - punishment is in line with lesser breaches of limit.
