Politicians pressured to answer questions on transport

The UK’s major political parties have been pressured to give their plans around a number of key problems facing UK transport.

In the run up to the General Election next year, the RAC has written to the leaders of the main political parties to ask what they intend to do about four key issues: driving behaviour, the high cost of fuel, the condition of the UK’s roads, and the issue of parking facilities.

The RAC has called for a reduction in fuel prices in order to sustain economic growth, proposing that there is a “strong case” for an immediate 3ppl reduction in fuel duty. Meanwhile, FairFuelUK have been looking to gauge public opinion by releasing a new online poll aimed at determining what road related issues are of greatest concern to voters.
