Taxes and Charges on Road Users

Memorandum of Evidence by CPRE to the Transport Select Committee Inquiry

CPRE believes that the environmental and social costs of more road traffic are now exceeding the benefits. While there are special circumstances in more remote rural areas, overall, we believe road users, particularly HGVs, ought to pay more to reflect these costs and improve public transport. This report outlines why road user taxes and charges need to be better enforced, with a greater proportion of revenue going go directly to improve access to public transport in rural areas.
