Road pricing may aid green transport

Road pricing may aid green transport
Plans to make travel more environmentally friendly have been met with approval by one green vehicle magazine.

Ben Lane, managing director of WhatGreenCar.com, said that road pricing will be more effective than fuel duty in helping to reduce carbon emissions.

The comments come in response to government proposals to cut down on long-term road transport emissions by introducing a road pricing scheme, eco-driving and speed limits.

However, Mr Lane said that more needs to be done to improve public transport in the country as this area still lacks investment.

"[The government is] supporting consumer technology, electric, better control of carbon emissions on current vehicles through road pricing and speed limits. They are also looking at switching people to public transport," he explained.

"[But] the one thing that seems to be missing is the investment needed in public transport. It's one thing getting people out of their cars but what do they get on? The current UK public transport is generally poor quality."
