With the Spring Budget approaching, used car website Trusted Dealers, in partnership with the National Franchised Dealers Association (NFDA), is calling on the government to make Britain “a fairer place for motorists”.
In particular, they say more needs to be done to tackle the ‘financial drain’ on drivers.
On average, British motorists spend around £3,453 every year on running their vehicles - equating to £100bn when applied to the 29.2m cars on UK roads.
The used car website canvassed the views of its customers to identify what motorists most want the government to address. The top 5 were:
1. Road tax and fuel costs
3. Motorway congestion and infrastructure
4. Parking costs
Trusted Dealers MD, Neil Addley, said: “Britain is the most expensive place in the world to own and run a car, so we at Trusted Dealers want to ensure that drivers get the most for their investment.”
