The driver of a Honda Civic was found to have drugs in his system after police tested him when he didn’t realise his car was unroadworthy.

North Yorkshire Police officers also issued a prohibition notice to prevent it being driven on a road until fixed.

TC Mark Patterson tweeted: “Driver tested positive on DrugWipeUK, which may explain why he thought his vehicle was roadworthy.”
