A Mosman woman caught drink driving three times in four months was sentenced in Manly Court on Friday.
45-year-old Carly Tamsin Steer avoided prison despite the numerous offences, including a 9:40 am police apprehension where she blew three times over the legal limit with five dogs in her car.
The court heard Ms Steer was caught driving on a suspended licence three times between January and February 2022.
The woman was also charged with three counts of driving with a suspended licence between January and February 2022.
Mosman Collective first reported this story last year after Ms Steer admitted to Police that she regularly drove her car while intoxicated.
She has since lost her business and her home.
Appearing via video link from a rehab centre, Ms Steer pleaded guilty to one count of high-range and mid-range drink driving, plus three counts of driving on a suspended licence.
In documents tendered to the court, police described Steer as “showing a disregard for public safety by continuing to drive” while over the limit.

Manly Daily journalist Jim O’Rourke reports Magistrate Robyn Denes was told Ms Steer blew 0.157 after being stopped in her VW Transport van on Belmont Rd by the Police Highway Patrol on February 4 last year.
“Just three weeks prior to that — on January 14 — Ms Steer had been charged with mid-range drink driving after allegedly driving a Toyota 4WD in Ourimbah Rd, Mosman at 11.30 am — this time with four dogs in the car,” O’Rourke writes.
The court also heard Ms Steer was stopped by the North Shore Highway Patrol in Glover St, Mosman, on January 24 while driving suspended.
