Audi driver with ‘tiny pupils’ arrested after positive cannabis test

A driver who police described as ‘twitchy’ has been arrested on suspicion of drug driving.

Police pulled over the driver on the A350 in Chippenham and noticed their ‘tiny pupils’.

They were arrested and sent to custody, with police also noting the Audi’s poorly maintained tyres.

Wiltshire Specials wrote on X on April 16: “Another twitchy driver, and poorly maintained #tyres. Noted tiny pupils #drugwipe #failed for #Cannabis – driver #arrested on suspicion of #drugdrive off to custody we go.”

What is the law on drug driving?

The GOV.UK website says it’s illegal to drive if you’re unfit to do so because you’re on legal or illegal drugs.

Or if you have certain levels of illegal drugs in your blood (even if they have not affected your driving).

The police can stop you and make you do a ‘field impairment assessment’ if they think you’re on drugs.

They can also use a roadside drug kit to screen for cannabis and cocaine.

If you’re convicted of drug driving you may get: a minimum one year driving ban; an unlimited fine; up to 6 months in prison; a criminal record.

Your driving licence will also show you’ve been convicted for drug driving. This will last for 11 years.

The maximum penalty for causing death by careless driving under the influence of drugs is life imprisonment.
