FUEL tax and road congestion are the two biggest headaches for UK motorists, according to a new report.
Research from BCA Europe, in association with Sewells Information and Research, questioned drivers on their satisfaction with key areas of motoring. Only 27% of drivers are satisfied with fuel tax and 35% with levels of road congestion.
The Used Car Market report also found British drivers are unhappy with the level of investment in transport infrastructure and road maintenance, compared to the amount of tax collected. Only 35% of drivers are happy with infrastructure taxes, and 36% with maintenance.
Drivers were asked to give their views on buying, driving and owning a car and despite taxes causing a few grumbles, many drivers claimed that they were satisfied with congestion charging at 41%, parking provision at 44% and public transport at 48%.
Speed cameras scored the highest mark with 62% of drivers claiming to be happy with them. Recently, the Department for Transport claimed that speed cameras had helped slash the number of deaths on UK roads.
