To create car sharing parking areas off major motorways and A Roads with a minimal charge e.g. £1 per day for car sharers. There are many people who work together who travel from various towns and financially and environmentally they would like to car share – but there are no places to meet up and leave their cars. The car parks on service stations cost a huge amount of money for the day – up to £40 per day! The government should purchase some land off the motorways – or insist that the service stations provide cheap car sharing parking.
In line with this measure should be an improvement in car sharing priority lanes as in the US/Leeds.
Why does this idea matter?
Reduce congestion taking cars off the road. Reduce emissions – reducing the carbon footprint of the country. Reducing the cost to the average commuter. Reducing the impact on city centres for parking.
