More than half of motorists willing to pay Clean Air Zone fees
The majority of UK motorists back government plans to cut air pollution but more awareness of the proposals is needed.
Research carried out by Allianz Global Assistance UK has found that 53% of respondents would be willing to pay a fee to drive in ‘Clean Air Zones’, which will restrict the use of more polluting vehicles. However, 17% of those surveyed were unaware that such a scheme has been proposed.
The research also found 54% of motorists surveyed would like to see speed bumps removed from UK roads in order to reduce pollution.
And 48% of car owners would be willing to trade in their current vehicle as part of a manufacturer scrappage scheme – but only if there was a big enough financial incentive.For more of the latest industry news, click here.
