'Incredibly Drunk' Driver Arrested After Not Noticing He Had A Tyre Missing

'Incredibly Drunk' Driver Arrested After Not Noticing He Had A Tyre Missing

A lot of the time, police pick up on suspicious behaviour from the subtlest of hints. But the job was made easy for coppers in Rotherham, UK, on Saturday night after a man was caught driving along with only three tyres.

Upon pulling the car over, police discovered that the driver of the Peugeot was 'incredibly drunk' - but this wasn't all he was arrested for.

On the South Yorkshire Police website, the force have advised people to refrain from drinking altogether before getting behind the wheel and have reminded people they could still be over the limit the morning after a big night.

The post reads: "There is no safe limit for the amount of alcohol you can have before driving. There is also no way of knowing how long it will take for alcohol to be processed by your body.

"Even a small amount of alcohol can affect your reaction times. Though there is a legal limit to how much alcohol can be in a person's system before they can drive, it is impossible to say how many drinks or units it will take to reach it.

"It is also possible to still be over the legal limit the following day. An average liver can process approximately one unit of alcohol per hour, starting one hour after drinking has stopped. This means that if someone drinks 12 units, it can take them roughly 13 hours to fully sober up.

"If you are caught you may banned from driving, have points added on your licence, an unlimited fine, or even imprisonment. This will mean increased insurance costs, potential job loss and even restrictions on travel to other countries such as the United States."
