He drove at speeds of up to 111mph in a terrifying police chase.
And drugged driver Peter Schofield roared around a busy Huddersfield roundabout the wrong way and jumped a red light before finally being cornered on the M62.
Now Schofield, who led police on an 18-mile chase from Huddersfield through Brighouse because he did not want his car to be seized, has been jailed.
Leeds Crown Court heard when he was eventually halted as police cars boxed him on the M62, he said he had only bought the Audi two days earlier at an auction and had no insurance and did not want it taken from him.
He also told officers he had taken 13 Diazepam tablets before driving when only two a day should be consumed.
Stephanie Hancock prosecuting said the pursuit began around 8.20pm on January 12 when Schofield was seen driving at speed in Willow Lane, Birkby.
Traffic officers began to follow him using their lights and siren but he ignored them and continued at speed through residential streets. At times he was on the wrong side of the road and he drove into the Asda supermarket petrol station using the exit and left via the entrance, forcing other cars to move out of the way.
He drove the wrong way round the Bradley Bar roundabout and continued to Brighouse where in the centre he went through a red traffic light. A cyclist had to pull over to avoid being hit.
The police helicopter joined the chase as Schofield reached the M62.

He was found to have a passenger with him and told officers he did not think his driving was dangerous if he was still alive and was proud at having done 120mph.
Peter Byrne representing Schofield said he did not now hold that attitude and stand by those comments.
Schofield, 20 of Moorside Road, Dewsbury Moor, admitted dangerous driving and having no insurance. He was jailed for six months and disqualified from driving for 18 months.
Recorder Tony Kelbrick said: “You were seen by the police driving too fast and instead of pulling over and taking what punishment might have been applied you set off driving very fast and very badly.
“I have come to the conclusion the offence is so serious only custody can be justified. The message must be sent out to young people like you who might be tempted to do what you have done.”
