Emma Tyrer explains why Commercial Motor is the best place for buying and selling new and used trucks

A lorry driver has been disqualified from driving after being so drunk at the wheel he fell out of his cab onto the M6 carriageway. Polish driver Pawel Kwik was arrested after police were called to an incident at junction 2 northbound at 7.15pm on 11 January. Kwik was so drunk it was initially thought he was suffering a cardiac arrest and when the police arrived at the scene the M6 was temporarily closed whilst numerous ambulance resources attended.

However, it quickly became clear Kwik wasn’t in cardiac arrest and he was arrested on suspicion of drunk driving. Following interview he was charged and remanded in custody to go before Leamington Spa magistrates. The magistrate disqualified the 31-year-old from driving for 22 months after taking into account his guilty plea.

He was also issued with a GBP416 fine, costs of GBP135 be paid to the CPS and surcharge to fund victim services of GBP41. Inspector Jem Mountford said: “We are extremely thankful that no one was killed or seriously injured as a result of this incident. “Pawel was almost three times over the legal drink drive limit.

He not only put his own life at risk but that of everyone else using the M6 motorway.”
