More than half of UK adults (55%) agree there is too much traffic congestion in their local area while just 23% disagree, says a new survey by Ipsos.
However, 71% feel they need a car to suit their current lifestyle, rising to 86% among those who have access to one. The survey found that while 21% agree it is less important to own a car nowadays some 59% reject the notion.
Seven in ten (71%) say they support actions to encourage more people to walk or cycle instead of driving a car to reduce the UK’s carbon emissions. Some 65% would support encouraging more people to use public transport rather than driving a car, and 57% would support actions to encourage greater use of ‘car-pooling’.
