'Idiot' drink-driver seven times over limit

Police have labelled a driver an idiot after causing an accident while driving at seven times the legal blood alcohol limit.

After crashing with another car in the Adelaide suburb of Plympton Park on yesterday morning, the 28-year-old woman recorded a breath test of 0.349 - almost seven times over the legal limit.

She was reported for drink driving, disobeying traffic lights and aggravated due care and immediately lost her licence for 12 months.

In a press release, South Australian police described the woman, from Marion, as an "idiot".

"With all the education that is offered about drink driving we still have motorists who actively make the choice to put the lives of other roads users at risk," Superintendent Bob Fauser said.

"Driving while affected by drugs or alcohol is a crime and a crime that causes violence and harm to innocent people including our children."

Police said alcohol contributes to around 30 per cent of all South Australia's road deaths.
