4.0 Motorists and the environment

Until the economic crisis, the environment was one of the key issues for motorists. The Government has been introducing higher taxes for the most polluting cars and the focus had been firmly on reducing CO2 emissions wherever possible. But now green issues are being left by the wayside.
