Svetlana Bargery, 40, of Wincanton, Somerset, was four times the drink-drive limit when she drove her BMW X3 over a pavement and into railings in June.
Tests showed she had 141mcg of alcohol in 100ml of breath, with the legal limit being 35mcg.
Ms Bargery admitted to officers that she had drunk the three glasses of wine before getting into her car to drop a rain coat off for her daughter at school.
After entering a guilty plea, the court handed her a 30-month driving ban and a 12-month community and supervision order along with 60 hours of unpaid work costs of £85.
The magistrate Sandra Bradshaw told her: "It is clearly most fortunate that worse incidents did not happen.
"However, we are not going to send you to jail."
What do you think? Should jail be mandatory for drink-driving convictions? Or a life-time driving ban? Or did the magistrate make the right call in this case?
