Appendix A: about this Report

The research for the Report was carried out for RAC by Quadrangle. A total of 1,040 motorists shared their views on motoring in 2008 and how it has changed since 1988 in an online survey during August and September 2008

Quadrangle also undertook four focus group discussions amongst particular groups of motorists, representing the following key motorists types:

  • Drivers, aged 17-44 years old
  • Drivers, aged 45 years old and over
  • Rural drivers
  • Urban drivers

The Report was prepared under the overall editorial control of Tracey Crouch, Head of UK Public Affairs, and has been guided by the expert contributions of the 2008 RAC Report on Motoring Advisory Panel that was chaired by David Bizley, Director of Technical.

The Report was written for RAC by Alison Hand and Guy Masters and edited by Rosanna Spero.

The Report was designed for RAC by Curious and printed by Williams Lea.
