A ‘green lining’ in the UK

A 'green lining' in the UK

Rising fuel costs have left a hole in the pockets of motorists across the country, but could have an unexpected positive effect in promoting green forms of transportation.

This is according to research commissioned by the UK’s leading independent road safety charity, IAM RoadSmart, which surveyed 1,004 motorists about the changes made as a result of rising fuel costs.

Of those surveyed, one in three (33 percent) said they decided to walk more, 17 percent said they used public transport more regularly, while 7 percent said they Bought or rode a bike more often.

Neil Gregg, Director of Policy and Research at IAM RoadSmart, commented: “The rising cost of fuel for homes across the country is yet another additional expense amid the deepening cost of living crisis.

“However, our research suggests that there has been an unexpected ‘green ray’ in rising fuel costs, as an increasing number of motorists switch to more environmentally friendly forms of transport.

But Neal also warned that the increase of pedestrians on Britain’s busy shared roads will change the dynamics of UK roads: “It is essential to consider the safety of all road users, especially those who suffer injuries in case of accidents.” would be most vulnerable to a collision.

Adhere to the Highway Code rule of “hierarchy of road users”, which dictates that road users such as cyclists and pedestrians are at greater risk from road traffic and therefore the greatest measures to reduce harm to motorists Responsibility must be taken, it will play an important role in helping the UK adapt to these changes.”

Meanwhile, those who decided not to give up the car altogether also made changes to the way they drive, with 38 percent of respondents saying they tried to drive more economically, and 1 9 percent have disclosed that they have been more careful. Respect the speed limit.

Neil said: “For many people, ‘hanging the keys’ is simply not an option, and the role of owning a car in terms of personal mobility and the way the UK moves forward cannot be underestimated. In such cases, We encourage motorists to follow those who have decided to drive more economically and reduce their speed, which will not only help keep prices down at petrol stations, but UK roads as much as possible Will keep it clean as well.
