It’s eco-worrier travel quiz time, dear reader!
Here are four questions for you:

ii) What percentage of car driven trips in London are for one passenger only?
iii) What percentage of London car trips are shorter than 2km?
iv) How many daily journeys to TfL estimate which are currently made by cars could be walked or cycled?
And…er…four staggering answers:

ii) 60% are solo journeys.
iii) 33% of journeys are less than 2km. And a further 32% 2-5km.
iv) TfL estimates that 6 million daily journeys in London could be walked or cycled.
