Wales is a blackspot for some motor crimes.
A survey shows 172,000 motoring offences recorded in Wales in 2015/16 and speeding accounted for 159,000 motoring offences in Wales while it ranks as fourth worst region for seatbelt crimes with 5,700 violations.
Just one driver was prosecuted for lane hogging on a road in Wales.
To highlight the research, Confused.com has launched an interactive Motor Crime Map of the UK compiled of Freedom of Information data, which shows the number of offences recorded in each region between 2015 and 2016.
The survey covered drink driving, speeding, petrol theft, drug driving, middle lane hogging, defective tyres and seat-belt offences.
Amanda Stretton, motoring editor at Confused.com, said, “The Confused.com Motoring Crime Map reveals some shockingly high figures for motoring crimes in Wales.
“Perhaps some drivers don’t realise the severity of these crimes, as they have potential to add points to your licence and could also see offenders hit with thousands of pounds in fines, plus an increase to their insurance premiums.”
