Driving licences were suspended in 51 of the 206 cases in which fines not exceeding 10 guineas, and in 21 of the 38 cases in which fines exceeding 10 guineas, were imposed in respect of convictions in Sheriff Courts and the High Court of Justiciary on charges of contravention of Section 11 of the Road Traffic Act, 1930, or on common law charges of dangerous driving. In addition, one licence was suspended in a case where imprisonment was imposed without the option of a fine.
