As an estimated 13 million car journeys are expected to take place over the Bank Holiday weekend, new research suggest the British public want proposed bans brought forward and more electric vehicles on the road to stop this ‘Motoring Mayday’.
The study, complied by Opinion Matters, shows that nearly one in five (19%) say bans on petrol and diesel cars coming into effect in 2040 are far too late, with 3.37m (12%) saying they must be introduced this year.
Further, more than two-thirds (68%) say they need an Ultra-Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) in their city, replicating that recently introduced in London – 42% want this introduced now or at least within the next five years.
Aston spoke to TV presenter, actor and founder of ‘Fully Charged LIVE’, Robert Llewellyn and MD of ‘Fully Charged LIVE’, Dan Caesar to discuss public hunger for more electric vehicles and what more needs to be done to stop excess pollution on British roads.
