Fuels, cars and drivers: the facts

Driving the debate - key transport stats

It is sometimes easy to forget just how important road transportation - especially that carried out by car - is to the citizens and commerce of this country.

Yet there is plenty of evidence out there which illustrates the reality of people's travelling.

Using data from sources such as the Department for Energy and Climate Change, DVLA, Living Costs and Food Survey, National Travel Survey and Transport Statistics GB, the Foundation has produced a factsheet with some of the key information. It is updated monthly.
