One driver began Christmas by being arrested for drug driving in York today (Sunday, 25 December).
Roads policing officer Sgt Paul Cording said it was one of two arrests he made on Christmas morning.
His team first took action in Harrogate when they pulled over a Vauxhall Corsa.
The driver is in custody after testing positive for both cocaine and cannabis on the Drugwipe detection kit.
“Not the best way to start Christmas,” Sgt Cording tweeted.
Then, at 6.51am, he revealed the incident in York when another driver was pulled over. They too tested positive for cocaine and cannabis.
The news comes a few days after North Yorkshire Police released the latest results of their drink and drug driving campaign.
Between 1 and 22 December there were 80 arrests: 50 were for drink driving and 27 were for drug driving, with three people arrested on suspicion of both.
So far 31 of those arrested have been charged to court.
Three drivers have already appeared in court and have been disqualified from driving for between 12 and 20 months receiving driving bans and fines totalling £1,999.
