A P-Plater who admitted getting drunk into another car after picking up two children from school embarrassedly introduced news cameras to face his "mistake".
37-year-old Neeraj Shukla had just picked up the kids from the Marayong Public School in Blacktown in western Sydney on Monday when he stopped in a number of shops.
It is believed that Mr. Shukla has switched to another car in the parking lot with two children, ages six and nine, in the back seat of his vehicle.

"They cried, it was very sad to see," witness Leang Klauth told 9 News.
When the police arrived on site, they had Mr. Shukla do a breath test, which he allegedly gave back blood alcohol levels of 0.198, more than three times the limit.
P-Plate drivers must keep a blood alcohol level of zero behind the steering wheel.
The chief inspector of NSW police traffic and Highway Patrol Command, Phil Brooks, was stunned by the alleged reading.
& # 39; Everyone who has a preliminary license has a mandatory limit of zero. Someone in this situation, at 0.198, really crossed that line and put himself and everyone else at great risk, ”he said.
Mr. Shukna returned to the parking lot on Monday and faced news cameras. He admitted that he had made a mistake and that he was ashamed to ever sit behind the wheel while drunk.
"I made a mistake … it was a bad day," he said.
His license has been suspended and he will face Blacktown Local Court next week.
