Having been involved in
Doing the right thing, the suspicious male called the police and conveyed his concerns to them, stating that he believed that the third party might have been driving whilst over the legal drink-drive limit.
Officers attended the scene and, as is often the case, breathalysed both the male who called the police and the male who was suspected of drink driving.
This is because officers have a duty to breathalyse all drivers who have been involved in an accident owing to the ever-present issues around road safety caused by the careless conduct of many drink drivers.
It turned out that both of the drivers involved in the minor accident were over the legal drink drive limit with one driver blowing 40 and the other blowing 78.
A tweet shared on @DerbyshireRPU said:
‘M1 J25. You couldn’t make this up.
‘Very minor collision at the junction causing no damage. One driver suspects the other is drunk so quite rightly calls us.
‘Forgetting he is also drunk. Both arrested. One blew 40 and the other 78. Charged to court.’
