Drunk driver failed to spot police car parked next to her

A 27-year-old woman driver four times over the limit failed to notice who was parked beside her at a petrol station forecourt.
A police car.
And the officers may not have given her a second thought except for one fairly obvious movement.
She “staggered out of her vehicle,” they reported later.
And, “concerned” about her, they did the next best thing – offered her a breathalyser test.
Which she failed spectacularly.
“She blew a reading of 151,” said a Facebook post by Cambridgeshire Police. “The legal limit is 35, meaning she was more than four times over the legal limit.”

Their post added: “Needless to say, she was arrested and spent the night in custody.”
The woman was arrested at a fuel station forecourt in Brampton on October 20.
Facebook posts offered her little respite.
“A figure that high, I bet they smelt the alcohol on her without getting out their car,” said one post.
“Throw the book at her she is a danger to innocent people.”
Another wrote: “Absolutely no consideration for other people’s safety…. lock her up.”
