Motorists reported the driver of a Ford Fiesta after spotting them weaving between lanes on the M6.
Patrols located the car on the hard shoulder near junction 21 (Woolston) and found the driver had pulled over for a nap.
They were subsequently caught nearly twice the drink-drive limit and arrested at the scene.
“The driver is now napping in a safer environment,” a spokesman for North West Motorway Police said.
