A New South Wales man who was allegedly seen driving erratically in Sydney's west has been charged with high-range drink driving after recording a breath test reading almost six-times the legal limit.

Authorities allege the 56-year-old man was first spotted driving a silver Toyota sedan on George Street in Windsor when he was stopped by police.

An on-location breath test came back positive and the man was arrested before he later returned a blood alcohol reading of 0.299 at Windsor Police Station.

He has since been charged with his second high-range drink driving offence and his licence has been suspended.

The Londonderry man has also been granted strict conditional bail and is expected to appear at Windsor Local Court on November 13.

NSW Police duty office Garry Sims said in a statement that the incident is a sign of the dangerous behavior of some drivers around the state.

"Too many drivers are engaging in risky and dangerous behavior on our roads – particularly due to impatience and poor decision making," he said.
