A Camperdown man blew more than four times the legal limit after he was found asleep at the wheel of his car.
Glen Jolly, 50, of Bowen Street, pleaded guilty in Warrnambool Magistrates Court to drink driving.
On June 5 he was observed driving a silver Ford Falcon on Camperdown-Cobden Road at Cobden about 1.15pm.
Police attended his home address about 40 minutes later and found him asleep at the wheel of the car, which was parked in his driveway.
He was woken and conveyed to a police station, where he blew 0.235.
The Falcon was impounded. It was Jolly's second drink driving offence.
Magistrate Leonard Brear said the man had put other people at significant risk.
"That is an extraordinarily high reading," he said.
"You don't see that level very often."
Jolly said he had been drinking alcohol that day and also the night before.
"It's probably the stupidest decision I've ever made in my life," he said.
Jolly was fined $1000 and his licence was disqualified for 12 months.
In an unrelated incident, an unlicensed motorist was caught drink driving after he narrowly avoided a collision with a police divisional van.
Jack Boyle, 25, of Castlereagh Close, Warrnambool, pleaded guilty to drink driving and unlicensed driving. He told the court he wished he could "take back all the actions I have caused".
On June 9 Boyle was driving a grey Holden utility west on Warrnambool's Dalton's Road at 9.15pm.
He failed to stop at an intersection, narrowly avoiding a collision with a police divisional van.
He was intercepted on Laverock Road, where police checks revealed his licence was cancelled because of a penalty notice in October 2017.
He underwent a breath test and recorded a blood alcohol level of .097.
He is required to blow .00 due to previous run-ins with the law.
Boyle's criminal history includes three counts of exceeding the speed limit by more than 35km/h and two counts of drink driving.
Magistrate Brear said it "wasn't a happy record".
The man was convicted and fined $1500.
His driver's licence was cancelled for a further 18 months.
