A 20-year-old p-plater who almost mounted a roundabout while mid-range drink-driving was convicted in Orange Local Court on Monday.
Emily Jame Powter, of East Orange, was driving along Leeds Parade when police saw her almost mount the roundabout at 7.35pm on July 3.
The police discovered her car was unregistered and uninsured, as of the day before.
When asked if she drank any alcohol in the previous 15 minutes she said she had a premixed can of Woodstock about five minutes before she was stopped.
After a 10 minute wait she was breath tested and produced a positive result so she was arrested and taken to Orange Police Station where she provided a mid-range reading of 0.091.
She said she drank three cans of Woodstock that night with the first about 6pm.
Magistrate David Day convicted her without further penalty for driving an unregistered and uninsured vehicle but he distqualified her driver's licence and placed her on a 12-month interlock order for drink-driving.
