About 6.40pm, Saturday 3 March, police were called to the Eyre Highway near Penong after reports of a white ute driving erratically.

Police will allege they located the car driving with no registration plates and a blown tyre before they managed to stop the car and speak to the driver.

When police stopped the car they breath tested the driver, a 46-year-old Coober Pedy woman, who allegedly returned a positive result of 0.184.

The woman was reported for drink driving, drive unregistered and unisured vehicle and expired licence.

She was also issued a 12 month loss of licence.

The woman will appear in the Ceduna Magistrates Court at a later date.
