Frustratingly though this is far from an isolated case.
Dangerous drivers, distracted drivers and downright stupid drivers are disregarding the law and putting all of our lives at risk.
Daryn Victor Rolinson was nabbed doing almost 200 kilometres and hour in a 110 zone. When New South Wales police pulled him over, he blew almost double the legal limit.More stories from Today Tonight
As if that wasn't bad enough, his fourteen-year-old son was in the passenger seat.
In another case concerned Queensland citizens called police after noticing Rachel Lyn Salter driving erratically.
The 26-year-old was caught driving at more than six times over the speed limit. She also had three children in the car.
Both drivers will learn their fate when they appear in court in March.
Brian Geoffrey Smith is a serial driving offender. The 41-year-old was pulled over near Port Macquarie and blew 0.481 - a level considered potentially fatal.
Only four days earlier his licence had been suspended after recording 0.253.
Josh Wheeler has been labelled Victoria's worst hoon. Last year the 22-year-old had five cars impounded - two within two days - yet he keeps on doing it.
"The only time I go at higher speeds is when I'm on the open road with a mate. And that's early in the morning ... when there are no cars or pedestrians around," he has said.
Then there's Victorian truckie David Ning. Despite having his licence suspended, he's been caught behind the wheel six times.
He also has a string of convictions for speeding, failing to stop after an accident, driving an unregistered vehicle, careless driving and using false number plates.
"I didn't do anything - no accident, nothing. Just a few unlicensed driving. If I (don't) do that, I lose my job. I have a big family to support," Ning said.
Last week New South Wales serial offender, 32-year-old Jason Louis was jailed for eighteen months. He was caught driving dangerously after already being banned from driving until 2074.
