Thorney drink driver Djiferson Monteiro who caused a head-on crash on New Year’s Day 2023, was more than three times over the limit, a court heard. Monteiro, 35, was driving a Ford Fiesta in Boongate, Peterborough, when he drifted into the path of an oncoming car.

Dashcam footage showed Monteiro drifting to the other side of the road, narrowly missing one vehicle, before crossing completely over into the other lane.

The driver of a Volkswagen Golf tried to avoid him by swerving onto the grass verge but was hit head-on and suffered a broken hand and wrist.

Monteiro underwent a roadside breath test where he gave a reading of 109, more than three times the legal limit of 35, despite telling officers that he had only had one beer earlier that day.

Checks on the car found he was not named on the insurance, which he claimed he was not aware of.

He was arrested before being taken to Peterborough City Hospital as a precaution.

Once fit to do so, Monteiro was required to provide an evidential blood sample to check his alcohol levels, which he refused, resulting in him being charged with failing to provide a specimen for analysis.

“Getting behind the wheel after you’ve had a couple of drinks is selfish, putting not only yourself but other road users at risk. It is not worth the risk, please arrange alternative transport if you consume alcohol.”

The force operates a confidential, hotline to report drink or drug driving – 0800 032 0845.

It is available 24/7 and gives people the chance to supply the police with information to help reduce the number of drink or drug drivers on the county’s roads.
