17 January, 2022 | Local

A 17-YEAR-old has been charged with a number of driving offences after being stopped by police in Wemyss Bay.

Police responded to a report of a car being driven by an uninsured driver in the village on Sunday night.

The driver was traced and required to provide a sample of saliva for a roadside drug screening test which he allegedly failed.

He was arrested and will be reported for various alleged road traffic offences including having no licence and no insurance and being intoxicated while driving.

Area commander Chief Inspector Paul Cameron said: “This is a worrying incident which could have had catastrophic results to the driver or 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.”
