A has been banned from the road for three years after being caught drink driving.
Concerned motorists alerted police after witnessing Dawn Elrick swerving across the road, and clip a kerb.
The 31-year-old pled guilty to driving with 78 microgrammes of alcohol in 100ml of breath. The legal limit is 22mcg.
Aberdeen Sheriff Court heard the offence happened on Station Road, Ellon, on June 25.
Fiscal depute Cheryl Clark said: “The accused was seen at about 5.10pm on June 25 by a couple who saw she was travelling in front of them. They were concerned about the manner of her driving.”
Ms Clark said Elrick was seen to sway around the road at about 40mph and “clip the kerb”.
She added her driving had “caused other motorists to take evasive action to avoid a collision with the accused”.
Witnesses contacted the police who traced the vehicle to an address and found Elrick inside.
Ms Clark said: “Police spoke with the accused. She appeared upset and smelled strongly of alcohol. She confirmed she was the driver of the vehicle.”
The fiscal depute added the reading of 78mcg was taken at about 7.30pm, around two hours after she was first seen by witnesses.
Defence agent John McLeod said: “This lady has had a real problem with alcohol. She has sought help in the past and is currently again seeking help.”
Sheriff Philip Mann granted a Crown motion for forfeiture of the vehicle involved, adding: “I won’t be making any further financial penalty.”
On top of her driving ban, he ordered Elrick, whose address was given in court papers as Auchtercrag Mansion, Ellon, Aberdeenshire, to be supervised for one year and carry out 100 hours of unpaid work within nine months.
