A woman in Sydney has been charged with high-range drink-driving after returning a reading of 0.324.

The legal blood alcohol concentration (BAC) limit for fully licensed drivers is 0.05 - meaning there is 0.05g of alcohol in every 100ml of blood.

Police were alerted to the potential issue at 1:40pm on Thursday when an off-duty officer noticed a silver Holden Astra sedan which was allegedly being driven in an erratic manner on Alfords Point Road at Illawaong.

Police said a short time later, Highway Patrol Police stopped the car on Orient Street in Padstow and spoke with the 32-year-old woman who was behind the wheel.

She allegedly then returned a positive road-side breath test and was arrested.

At Revesby Police Station she underwent a breath analysis, which returned the 0.324 reading.

Her NSW Driver's Licence was suspended on the spot, and she was issued a Court Attendance Notice for high-range PCA (Prescribed Content of Alcohol).

The Erskine Park woman is now due to appear at Bankstown Local Court on Wednesday, March 30.
