Stoned driver caught after police spotted a big clue

hi

 

Stoned driver caught after police spotted a big clue

 

Turbo technician James Hovarth said he regularly used drugs

 

A red and watery-eyed driver stopped by police was under the influence of cannabis.

James Hovarth's Volkswagen Scirocco was pulled over at 9am on August 25.

The 21-year-old was driving along De Lacey Avenue in Almondbury at the time, Kirklees magistrates were told.

Vanessa Jones, prosecuting, said: “As soon as the officers spoke with him they could smell a strong scent of cannabis and his eyes were red and watery.”

Hovarth was arrested and taken to Huddersfield Police Station after giving a positive roadside drug test.

He later gave a sample of blood which showed that he had 2.9 micrograms of delta-9-tetrahydrocannibinol (cannabis derivative) per litre of blood.

 

This is over the legal limit of two micrograms.

Hovarth, of Broadgate Crescent in Almondbury, pleaded guilty to driving with a proportion of a controlled drug above the specified limit.

 

In November last year he was handed a nine month suspended jail term for possession of a drug with intent to supply it.

Paul Blanchard, mitigating, said that his client was stopped for routine checks but did admit to being a regular drug user.

He told magistrates that despite this he holds down a job as a turbo technician working with motor vehicles.

 

However, he is unsure if he will now be able to keep this role due to his conviction.

Magistrates banned Hovarth from driving for 12 months.

He was fined £200 and must pay £85 court costs and £32 victim surcharge.

So there is a "legal limit " to how much you can have in your blood yet it is illegal to put it into your blood ...... interesting

It's just a revenue stream for the courts imo, I'd be much more worried about those driving under the influence of smack/crack tbh

I'd be more worried about those driving after having necked a couple of half litre cans of caffeinated 'energy drink' (of which there are many), I doubt it adversely affects reaction time or stuff like that but I'd be very surprised if it didn't make drivers less safe by making them more aggressive.

Give a cigarette to someone who's never smoked and get them to drive straight after.

 

A cig fucks me far more than a pure joint does
