A nationwide list reveals that around one in seven drivers from Glasgow - 14.5% - have at least one penalty point on their licence, the highest concentration anywhere in the UK.
Drivers from Motherwell in North Lanarkshire and Kilmarnock in East Ayrshire are the second and third most likely in the UK to carry points on their licence, with 14.1% of motorists in Motherwell affected and 12.2% - around one in eight - in Kilmarnock.
Drivers in Kilmarnock are also the fourth most likely in the UK to have nine or more points on their licence.
Only one non-Scottish location - Liverpool -features among the top five, with Paisley in Renfrewshire taking the fifth spot with almost one in nine drivers there having at least one penalty point.
They are among a total of 13 Scottish towns and cities to make the top 100 across the UK.
Motorists who accrue 12 points within a three-year period can face an automatic driving ban, while newly-qualified drivers who receive six points within two years of qualifying will also have their licence revoked.
Points are issued for a range of motoring offences. Failing to stop after an accident can result in up to ten points, driving while disqualified is punishable by six points, while causing death by careless driving while over the alcohol limit can result in anything from three to 11 points. Breaking speed limits and cutting through a red light can also result in anything from three to six points.
The comparatively high levels of penalty points among motorists north of the Border has been attributed to the increased numbers of road police in Scotland at a time when staffing levels in England and Wales have been cut.
The number of traffic police in Scotland has risen by 4% in the past five years, while in many parts of England and Wales, numbers have been cut by 12%.
