BMW DRIVER SUSPECTED OF DRUG DRIVING STOPPED FOR A SECOND TIME

Published at:

Police on the Isle of Wight have arrested the driver of a BMW on suspicion of drug driving for the second time in just 10 days.

Officers from the Joint Operations Unit stopped the white BMW 1-series saloon on South Street in Newport earlier on this evening (Sunday).

A roadside drugs wipe was completed resulting in an indication for the presence of cannabis in the driver’s system.

The male was arrested on suspicion of drug driving and taken to Newport Police Station, where a sample of blood was collected for analysis – the same process carried out just 10 days ago when the same man was arrested on suspicion of the same offence.

The driver and his passengers have also been reported for breaching the current COVID-19 lockdown restrictions.

Maybe he didn’t. A roadside drugs test is only an indicator. The offender will have been taken to a police station and a blood sample taken. That is sent off for analysis. That takes a while to come back. If over the limit, driver will get charged. In this case, maybe twice…

Until it kills someone, nothing will be done. The authorities are ‘happy’ and proud, just to catch someone, issue a ticket, and watch their ‘points’ on the number of arrest climb. Justice is no longer about keeping the public safe, it is about doing what is asked by those above, and no more. So, if he maims someone, unless they die, little punishment will be awarded. He will go on in his carefree life, until someone is killed, then a sentence for a while will ensure it is removed from society briefly. Best hope it is not someone you love… Read more »

Yes, and I know this road like the back of my hand, and I always drive a bit better when I’ve had a couple – more relaxed!
