Naas District Court has one of the highest conviction rates in respect of drivers holding their phone while behind the wheel.

55% of people appearing before the courts on such charges were convicted between January 2015 and March of this year.

However, of the 12,000 such cases, nationwide, in that period, a third were convicted.

Another 33% of cases couldn't proceed as summons hadn't been issued.

Independent TD, Tommy Broughan, says conviction rates in all of Kildare's courts are higher than the national average.
