Alliance of British Drivers EU Transport Policy Poll
Survey of the British public on EU transport policies.

A new poll of the British public for the Alliance of British Drivers highlights a lack of clarity among Britons on the benefits of EU transport policy on motorists.

The survey found that:

  • Almost half of Britons (47%) support the proposal to halve the use of fuelled-cars (e.g. petrol and diesel) in urban transport by 2030. A similar proportion (45%) also support phasing the use of fuelled-cars out of city-centres entirely by 2050.
  • However, almost two-third of Britons (64%) oppose the proposal to increase the use of tolls and other road charges in the long-term in order to discourage car use and reduce CO2 emissions. Three in five (61%) also oppose introducing road pricing with a standardised charge per driven kilometre across the whole of Europe, including Great Britain.
  • Three in ten Britons (29%) say that the changes in European road policy regarding road safety in Britain have had a positive impact, and one in nine (11%) think the impact has been negative.
  • However, Britons are more sceptical when it comes to the cost of driving in Britain, where two in five Britons (40%) say that the changes in European road policy have had a negative impact, and one in eleven (9%) say the impact has been positive.
