Three-quarters of British households now have access to a car,
whilst the proportion of households with two or more cars has
risen, from a quarter in the mid-1990s to a third at the end of the
2000s. Britain's car culture is highly ingrained but there are
mounting concerns about the rising cost of driving, environmental
impact, road congestion, and health and fitness.
This report offers a wide-ranging examination of British driving
habits, encompassing: current driving participation; eating and
drinking en route; in-car entertainment and navigation technology;
motor insurance; the impact of rising petrol prices and
environmental issues; potentially dangerous driving activities; and
attitudes to driving and other drivers.
