INVERCLYDE’S police chief has hit out at drug and drink drivers after another alleged incident in the area.
Officers on patrol stopped a car on Virginia Street, Greenock at 12:25am today.
Sergeant Jason Logsdon said: “On speaking to the driver, officers believed him to be intoxicated due to a smell of cannabis.
“As such, he was required to provide a sample of saliva for a roadside drug screening test which he [allegedly] failed.
“As such a 26-year-old male was arrested and will be subject of a report regarding the alleged offences.”
Chief Inspector Paul Cameron said: “This is another driver who thinks that it’s acceptable to drive while [allegedly] under the influence of drink and drugs.
“My message is clear: it is not acceptable, you are causing a danger to yourself and other road users.
“I am urging people to please continue to report anyone they believe is driving while intoxicated; this type of behaviour is irresponsible and can wreck lives.”
