A trifecta on this one; drink driving, never held a licence, unrestrained 3 month old baby on her lap.

Police have been told a 38-year-old Sunbury woman was driving through the 40km/h school zone on Charter Road about 4.30pm when she struck at least four cars.

The woman, who had her teenage daughter in the vehicle at the time, didn’t stop and a number of witnesses contacted police.

She was located by police at a nearby panel beaters on Vineyard Road.

Sunbury police approached the woman and a physical altercation ensued.

She was eventually arrested and taken back to Broadmeadows police station for interview.

A learner driver with two young children in her car is expected to face criminal charges after allegedly returning a blood-alcohol reading of 0.324 in a breath-test in Melbourne's west.

Werribee police, who were responding to reports of a minor crash in a supermarket car park, breath-tested the woman soon after midday on Thursday.

The woman, 39, of Cairnlea, allegedly returned a blood-alcohol reading of 0.324.

Fully licensed drivers must have a blood alcohol concentration of 0.05 per cent or lower, however learner drivers must drive with a blood alcohol concentration of zero.

The woman also had a young boy and a young girl in the car with her, one of whom was not restrained with a seatbelt at the time of the crash.

Investigators expect the woman to face multiple charges.

"Her licence was immediately suspended and her vehicle was impounded," a police spokeswoman said.

"She is expected to be charged on summons with drink driving, careless driving, [driving with an] unrestrained child and being an unaccompanied learner driver."

There was a similar incident at my son's school last week. A father dropping off his child was abusive and threatening to other parents, he was clearly high (most likely ice), the principal had to ask him to leave, he hooned up and down the street a couple of times (in the middle of school drop off, so heaps of other kids around), his child was mortified. The cops were called and came around, but I don't know whether he got done for anything.

Yes, if the little darlings were to walk or cycle to the nearest school it would do wonders!
And according to reports on 3AW this morning if parents took more interest on their local school its results would be just as good as the woop woop school!

at 13 she probably doesn't know the road rules to not turn across in front of a cyclist
