Male drivers are more likely to pick up convictions while on the road, according to new figures.

Welsh Transport Statistics show that 84 per cent of motoring offences heard at magistrates courts in 2006 involved men, according to News Wales.

Furthermore, the figures show that 54 per cent of offences dealt with in court that year involved motorists having a problem with their driving licence, or invalid MOT certificates and car insurance policies.

The news source added that the courts dealt with 130,000 motoring offences during the year - seven per cent less than was registered in 2005.

Of those found over the legal alcohol limit on the road, 56 per cent were aged between 25 and 50, with 32 per cent younger.

In addition to fuel protests in London this week, truck drivers also headed to Wales in order to raise awareness of their grievance with the current cost of petrol and diesel.
