Most drivers think road tolls are 'inevitable'
The survey (of over 1,500 motorists) notes that drivers would now be willing to pay to use motorways and drive into cities if taxes such as Vehicle Excise Duty and petrol was lower. The chances of lower pump prices however, is slim to nothing.
David Bizley, the RAC Technical Director, says: “The report suggests that motorists would prefer to see a higher share of motoring taxation levied on those things over which they have greater control – such as whether or not they choose to drive into city centres or use a particular motorway.”
“Our Report on Motoring shows that Britain’s motorists – and roads – have been left battle-scarred after a further 12 months of bearing the burden of extreme financial conditions."
“Our research shows that the UK motorist isn’t being unreasonably demanding – all he or she wants is for more of their motoring taxation to be spent on roads.”
