Conviction Rates For Drivers Using Mobile Phone As Low As 14%

Conviction rates for using a mobile phone while driving are as low as 14 percent in some parts of the country.

New data seen by the Irish Times shows between 2018 and 2020, 25 percent of people who were brought to court nationally were convicted.

When broken down by county, conviction rates were as low as 14 percent in Sligo, and as high as 36 percent in Wicklow.

Transport commentator, Conor Faughnan, says a one in four conviction rate is a really poor number.
