A motorist who was delivering Chinese food in Norwich has been arrested for drug driving.
Norfolk and Suffolk Roads and Armed Policing Team (RAPT) tweeted about the arrest in a post on Twitter late on Sunday (December 9) night.
They tweeted: 'Yet another Drug driver last night in Norwich... delivering Chinese food.. he didn't expect to find arrest on the menu...#923 #fatal4'.
New legislation introduced in March 2015, has made it easier for police to tackle drug drivers.
The legislation introduced a prescribed limit which can be tested for rather than having to rely purely on subjective impairment tests to assess whether someone is unfit to drive
