Speeding offences are 'worst in Scotland'
Scotland has some of the areas with the highest proportion of young drivers with motoring convictions in the UK, according to a survey by Moneysupermarket.
More than half of male drivers aged between 17 and 21 in Milngavie in East Dunbartonshire have a speeding conviction. Other areas highlighted were Crieff in Perthshire and Bishopton near Paisley.
The research also showed that drivers with speeding convictions risk big rises in car insurance premiums. On average, drivers with nine points on their licence from three speeding offences would see their premium increasing from £546 to £858.
