At one dangerous moment, another driver had to swerve suddenly to avoid a terrifying head-on collision with the errant vehicle. The car was eventually located by Lancashire Police who found the driver, 75-year-old David Haughton, to be nearly two times over the limit.
Police released the footage on Saturday after Haughton was sentenced to eight months in prison and a two-year driving ban.Also on rt.com WATCH meteor whizz above Siberian city & go out with a BANG
