Welcome to the RAC Foundation - the motoring research charity

What goes where? Transport tax and spending

Road users are now paying four times more money to the Chancellor in motoring taxation than is being spent by the government on the roads.

A report for the RAC Foundation shows that in 2012, £30.7 billion was raised from direct motoring taxation (excluding VAT): £24.8 billion from fuel duty and £5.9 billion from VED. Move your cursor over the chart to get precise numbers.
