Motor insurances: It's good to drive

Friday, 08 December 2006

Car ownership is not necessarily a bad thing, according to environmental experts.

The Environmental Transport Association (ETA) says that having a car isn't always bad but for the sake of quality of life, motorists need to balance the use of the car against other things such as pollution.

Andrew Davies, spokesman for the ETA, said: "We would like to see integrated planning to make sure that a town runs so smoothly that the motor car is rendered useless.

"Most cars sit idle and are useless. They are a very inefficient use of a resource and we do not use them as well as we should."

He continued that road building should be seen as a network which efficiently links the country together with roads of superior quality. Once this is achieved Mr Davies says that no new roads will be needed.

This news comes just as chancellor Gordon Brown admitted he will not be swapping his Vauxhall Omega for a more environmentally-friendly hybrid motor and he therefore looses out on the possible car insurance savings one can have with such a car.
