DRINK-driver Paula Law had two seven-year-old children in the car on the day she failed a breath test.
Police had earlier received information about Law driving a Ford Escort, and officers followed her to her home in Queensway at Soham, Ely magistrates were told on Thursday.
Law, 38, admitted driving when over the alcohol limit on January 20, her breath test reading was 48 mcgs of alcohol in 100 mls of breath, when the legal limit is 35 mcgs.
"Police had received information about the usage of a Ford Escort, so officers went to Soham and spotted the car being driven in the opposite direction," explained prosecutor Matthew Bradbury.
