Highway Maintenance truck driver fails drink drive test

A Highway Maintenance truck driver failed a breath test after being stopped by officers from the Merseyside Roads Policing Unit. When his vehicle was pulled over by the police, the motorist confessed that he had been consuming alcohol before getting behind the wheel. He subsequently tested positive and was arrested on suspicion of drink driving.

He was breathalysed just before midnight on Saturday evening and his test was 60 micrograms of alcohol per 100ml of breath, which is almost double the legal limit of 35. The incident was recounted in a 3.32am post during the early hours of this morning, which was accompanied by a picture of the truck and readings from the positive tests. The post read: “The driver of this vehicle was stopped and spoken to by #syn3 officers.

“The driver admitted to consuming alcohol prior to driving and ultimately provided a positive breath test and was arrested. #dontdrinkanddrive #itsnotworthit #fatal4.”
