Of those surveyed 81% said people should be encouraged to use their cars less and 88% would consider driving a car fuelled by either gas or electricity and 54% would consider car sharing. In addition 68% of all drivers would consider using public transport in the future to reduce the number of cars on the road.
Among company car drivers, 75% would use public transport to reduce pollution compared to 55% who would use it if it reduced their company car tax bill. Congestion is the biggest gripe of motorists with almost half of those surveyed saying they spent too much time in their cars. More than half were prepared to pay a charge if it reduced congestion.
