Drivers show determination to continue using cars

COMPANY car drivers have shown their determination to continue using their vehicles if the Government were to introduce taxes charging motorists to drive into cities. Just 17% of company car drivers questioned in a survey of motorists said they would switch to public transport if new charges on car use were brought in, compared to a quarter of private car users.

The results could be an indication that company car drivers believe charges would encourage private car users off the road, clearing the way for essential car users, according to NOP Automotive, part of NOP Research Group, which carried out the survey of 508 drivers. Just over half the company car drivers questioned believed a scheme to introduce charges would be successful in cutting traffic, compared to around 30% of private owners.
