If you drink and drive, you'll learn the hard way how much you need your licence, according to police.
Senior Constable Jo Vanwegen, of Hamilton police, said a 31-year-old Branxholme man was feeling very sorry for himself after being caught with a blood alcohol reading of .114.
"That's an immediate loss of licence and he will be walking for at least 11 months," Senior Constable Vanwegen said.
She said the man was caught on the Henty Highway shortly after 6.30am on Sunday.
"He was very lucky - he could have taken out a family or himself," Senior Constable Vanwegen said.
"Police are frustrated at the amount of drink drivers. How many times to people need to be told?"
Senior Constable Vanwegen said the man was feeling very remorseful because he may lose his job as a result.
"I said to him 'on a positive note you haven't killed a family or yourself. He's learnt the hard way."
