Adriver who was stopped by police was found to be more than 120 times over the drug driving limit, with ecstasy, cocaine and amphetamines in his system.

Gintars Garkajs, 30, was stopped at 2am on January 10 while driving his Audi A6 in Peterborough, Cambridgeshire.

Suspicious that he might be driving under the influence, officers subjected Garkajs to a roadside drug wipe test which indicated the presence of cocaine.

After being arrested he underwent further tests which showed that he was more than 120 times of the legal limit for MDMA, the chemical name for the drug ecstasy.

He was also found to be ten times over the limit for cocaine and also had traces of the stimulant amphetamine in his system.

Garkajs from Wisbech, pleaded guilty to driving under the influence when he appeared at Cambridge Magistrates Court, where he was jailed for 18 weeks and banned from driving for five years.

“Driving under the influence of drugs is completely unacceptable. “By doing so you significantly increase the chance of being involved in a serious, even fatal collision. It’s simple, if you’ve consumed drugs, don’t risk driving.”
Sergeant Ian Manley

Sergeant Ian Manley from the Cambridgeshire force said: “Driving under the influence of drugs is completely unacceptable.

“By doing so you significantly increase the chance of being involved in a serious, even fatal collision. It’s simple, if you’ve consumed drugs, don’t risk driving.”

Drug driving limits are set very low for illegal substances and there are also designated levels for some prescription medicines.


Other so called impairment tests can also be conducted to determine a person’s ability to drive.

Figures published earlier this year showed the vast scale of the problem of drug driving with as many as six motorists in ten who were subjected to roadside tests proving positive.

Drivers impaired by drugs are believed to be responsible for up to 200 deaths on British roads annually.

Those convicted of drug driving can receive a minimum one year driving ban, a fine of up to £5,000 and up to a year in prison.
