A woman who crashed her car while drunk on vodka party drinks will be "suffering from this evening for a long period of time," her solicitor says.
That forced the ute into the car parked in front.
"Your honour," defence lawyer James Sloan told magistrate Imad Abdul-Karim, "this is obviously a very serious matter.
"She made a very terrible mistake, that's obvious, and she knows it."

Mr Sloan said Martin had been left with "a substantial financial cost".
That involved at least $20,000 in repair bills for the victims' vehicles.
In sentencing the 23-year-old North Albury woman, Mr Abdul-Karim noted she was someone of "good character".
"It was a high reading," he said of her blood alcohol result of almost five times the legal limit.
"You put yourself at risk and you put other road users at risk."
Martin previously pleaded in Albury Local Court to a single charge of driving with a high-range prescribed concentration of alcohol, of 0.220.
For that, Mr Abdul-Karim this week convicted her and placed her on a 12-month community correction order that requires her to do 100 hours of unpaid work.
She was disqualified from driving for seven months.
Martin drank the Vodka Cruisers on April 21 between 6pm and 10.35pm.
Just seven minutes later, Albury police received reports of the crash.
