A driver was arrested twice in four days for drug-driving.
The 36-year-old man was first pulled over in Nottingham Road, Nuthall, on December 27 after an officer spotted him driving without a seatbelt and with a broken rear light.
He was asked to take a roadside drugs test and was arrested after testing positive for cocaine.
The driver was taken into custody and later released under investigation pending the results of a blood sample.
The same driver was arrested again on New Year’s Day after being pulled over in Gamble Street, Radford, at 12.40am.
Again he tested positive for cocaine and was arrested.
Another blood sample was sent off for analysis and the suspect was granted bail pending the results.
PC Dan Bird, who made both the arrests, said:
“Driving under the influence of drugs is extremely dangerous and it is shocking this driver has been caught twice in the space of only a few days.
“As with alcohol, drugs can affect your driving in numerous ways, drastically increasing the risk of causing a collision.
“In just a split second, drink or drug driving can completely tear an innocent family apart and lives can be destroyed. That’s why we continue to work hard to take offenders off the road before they've got the opportunity to cause this level of misery.
“The message is clear; we will not tolerate drink and drug drivers on our roads and those caught drinking and driving can expect to be dealt with robustly.
“I urge everyone to play their part and help keep our roads safe by reporting anyone who is driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
“Try to discourage them but if they won’t listen to you ring us and report them.
“Call us on 101 or 999 if there's an immediate threat to life or property. You can also call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
