A delivery driver was forced to ‘walk the line’ today after being stopped in March on suspicion of being under the influence of drugs.
The driver was stopped after police said there was “concern raised” about his driving. They suspected he had been either drink driving or under the influence of drugs.
“The driver was taken to the Police Investigation Centre for a preliminary impairment test see if he passes,” said Cambs Police on their Fenland Twitter feed.
“The company who the driver was delivering for is sorting out the parcels to get them delivered.
“Sorry if you’re expecting a parcel”
Police also put on social media evidence of suspected drug taking and a photo of the driver being given the impairment test.
Cambridgeshire Police recently warned drivers to expect a “highly visible police presence” on the county’s road in the run-up to Christmas.

Officers are warning drink-drivers that they will be caught – and they are calling on members of the public to report drink drivers and those driving under the influence of drugs by calling the county’s confidential hotline number.
“Using the 0800 032 0845 number, which is available 24/7, allows you to supply us with information to help us reduce the number of drink drivers on our roads, which ultimately leads to lives being saved,” says police.
