Politicians are failing to address the needs of motorists, a new survey has suggested.

According to a poll by, 93 per cent of drivers believe that the revenue generated by fuel tax should be used to address the deterioration of Britain's roads.

There are three areas which car insurance customers believe are a priority - fixing the increasing number of potholes, bringing back the scrappage scheme and for fuel duty to be cut.

Kate Wardle, marketing manager for the website, told that motorists are concerned that their voices are not being heard and that the party which takes action to address their needs will attract significant support.

"Motorists across the UK are fed up with being ignored by politicians and a Motorist's Manifesto would make sure the needs of UK motorists are heard by all political parties," she added.

In a move which could have an effect on car insurance costs, the majority of those surveyed said they would support a move to increase the motorway speed limit above 70mph.
