A vehicle was stopped and the driver was arrested by police this week for drunk driving.
The driver was breathalysed and provided a roadside reading of 154 micrograms per 100ml of breath - when the legal limit is 35 micrograms.
In another incident this week, a learner driver was stopped after officers caught the driver’s supervisor on their mobile phone.
These were just a couple of the incidents covered in the last seven days by the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire (BCH) Road Policing Unit – the policing unit which patrols Peterborough’s roads.
The Peterborough Telegraph has compiled a round-up of the images shared on the BCH Road Poling Unit’s social media account this week:
1. Lorry collides with van
This broken down van was struck by a HGV in Peterborough on August 5. There were no injuries as the driver of the van was outside of the vehicle and positioned safely behind the barrier. Police have urged drivers to never remain in their broken down vehicles in a live lane.
2. Pursuit of suspected lampers
The occupants of this vehicle were suspected of 'lamping' - the activity of hunting at night using lamps. The occupants failed to stop and a pursuit started, with occupants trying to blind officers with lamping torches. One person was detained while the car and five dogs were recovered.
3. Uninsured driver
This vehicle appeared uninsured on the Police National Computer (PNC) database. Police checks with the driver revealed that the policy was cancelled due to non-payment in April this year. Driver given points on licence and a fine.
4. Pursuit of stolen van
This stolen van failed to stop. The driver attempted to escape across a pavement before decamping. After a lengthy foot chase, the driver was arrested. Police thanked the public who pointed out the driver's location.
