Thumbs down Drink Driving

Hey guys,

its not easy to say this, but last thursday night i wrote my car off. I had also had a cuple of drinks, and im on my P's. Although the accident wasn't directly affected by me drinking, i believe it still had an impact.

Im not looking for any sympathy here, just want to tell you all its not worth it, if your gona drink, leave ur car home or catch a taxi or something, cos when it happens, nothing hurts more than when you look at your pride and joy written off, knowing it was your own stupid fault.

but hopefully you all have more sense than me!

Re: Drink Driving

Bad luck mate. But at least you have learnt a very valuable lesson. It could have been a lot worse too.

Re: Drink Driving

Forget about the car, it's just a car. How about thinking of all the people you could of killed? I think that if your stupid enough to be drink driving you deserve everything you get. Sympathy? Not here!

Re: Drink Driving

Thanks for your advise, I'm sure that took a lot to admit.

I'm not going to flame you either, we all make mistakes, but you should be very thankful yours didn't kill anyone.

Are you in VIC? If so the 'P' plater laws here had you stuffed anyway. All the other states in Aus you'd have been on a full licence and a drink or 2 wouldn't have been questioned. Welcome to the nanny state.

I hope it all goes well for you.

Re: Drink Driving

I dont even know why some poeple post shit like this.
They know how bloody wrong it is & they are going to get a grilling over it.
A lesson to be learn by all.
You are just lucky you didn't kill anyone cause you would of had your arsehole stretched out over the next few years behind bars cause of it.

Is the insurance paying out???
Did you have any insurance???

Agreed, it was a pretty ballsy thing to admit to knowing you'll cop a flaming. Everyone who has posted here is right in what they are saying but I'm not going to apply the blowtorch. I'm just relieved no-one got hurt or killed, otherwise you would have that on your concience for the rest of your life, let alone doing some serious bend over time in jail.

Everyone was young and dumb once, just learn from this and move on, OK??

Re: Drink Driving

Okay... I'm sure you feel bad enough anyway with your car wrecked.. I will however agree that you are very lucky no-one was with you or you didn't crash into someone elses car.

You know what you did wrong. I can't understand why you would do it in the first place, but you have obviously learnt your lesson (without having to learn the hardest way)

So I support you coming here and warning off other people.

If at least one person been drinking, thinks about driving home, then remembers that your car was creamed on the forum and it stops that one person from driving... then potentially that is a saved life.

The more people understand how their actions can hurt others and themselves...the better.

Re: Drink Driving

I've got a full semi truck licence and I can't even get caught with 'ANY' alcohol in my blood even if I'm driving a normal car not just a truck. I've met one bloke who got picked up in his car in SA under .05 and still lost his whole licence on the spot because he had a semi licence. So go out and get a truck licence and that will stop you drink driving period!

Re: Drink Driving

Yes, without adding to the flame session, I know Luke (HotEF) personally and he has definitely learnt his lesson. Im glad he walked away, but it could possibly be the other way around so easily. On another note, I think he's gonna put his car on the parts for sale section to assist in the funding of another car. There are some parts worthy of purchasing if you have the $$$.

A good lesson for us all old or young!
