Drivers urged to stay green in 2009

Drivers urged to stay green in 2009
A campaign has been launched by the government aimed at encouraging motorists to make a greener choice when buying a new car.

The initiative launched by the Department for Transport allows drivers to compare different vehicles to see which have the worst carbon emissions.

It has established a new ACT ON CO2 website which motorists can browse to find an environmentally-friendly car.

Transport minister Andrew Adonis said: "This campaign shows how the choices we make when buying a new car can have a big impact on future fuel costs and emissions, as well as the road tax we pay.

"By using the ACT ON CO2 search tool, buyers can choose the most fuel efficient cars and see the savings on the screen in front of them."

He added: "I hope this will encourage individuals and businesses to look for an economical car whilst supporting the industry and stimulating widespread environmental change."

The online tool shows visitors how much money they could save by purchasing a fuel efficient car while helping to save the environment.
