There's no shortage to statistics and statements on the dangers of drink-driving.
But despite the plethora of information about the perils of getting behind a wheel after drinking or taking drugs, there seems to be those who continue to disregard the reality. Drink-driving kills.
Magistrates in Griffith Local Court wax lyrical on the figures showing the amount of tragedies and accidents on our roads caused by impaired drivers.
Just this Wednesday alone, there were three people in court for high-range drink-driving, four for driving with mid-range, one P-plater driving with alcohol in his system, and three drug drivers.
Magistrate Joy Boulos said she was "tired of hearing her own voice" repeat the same thing over and over and over again.
Last weekend, Murrumbidgee Police District officers conducted Operation Towards Zero, deliberately targeting drink-driving on rural roads throughout the command.
They caught over seven people on MIA roads with alcohol in their systems.
One man was caught twice within two days, the first time almost hitting someone else on the road, the second, smashing into signs just outside Burrell Place Woolworth's.
Commander, Superintendent Craig Ireland was completely astounded by the amount of people deliberately flouting the rules and endangering lives. "Absolutely disgraceful" he called them.
Our first responders see it all. They pry the bodies out of cars, they inform families that person's gone forever.
Living in rural and regional areas like Griffith, it isn't as easy for us to catch a bus, a train, an Uber home after a few bevvies at the pub.
But are really willing to forgo our lives, our families' lives, other's lives, because we want to "just have a few?"
Put yourself in a position of the worst-case scenario. What would you leave behind if you were to die in an accident after drink-driving?
Picture your family. What would they go through?
Think about the best night out you've ever had. You drive home with friends and family in the car. You crash, killing them instantly but you survive.
Imagine sitting in court, staring into the broken faces of the family of your victim. Could you live with yourself?
It is so easy to get complacent about the dangers, but it shouldn't be the fear of being caught, getting fined, spending time off the road or installing an interlock that deters us.
It should be the finality of the worse-case.
