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.
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.
