THOUGHTS: ABD call for driver opinions

The Alliance of British Drivers (ABD) are inviting the public to give their opinions on how local councils help or hinder motorists.

Subjects up for discussion include parking, congestion, bus lanes, 20mph zones and speed humps.

The ABD are looking to encourage responses by launching a prize competition for entries, called ‘Does Your Council Give You the Hump?’.

Ian Taylor, Director at the ABD, said: “We were promised before the last general election that the ‘War on the Motorist’ would be ended, but many drivers feel it is still going on.

“Our local authorities are too often sold on the idea that they have some kind of duty to discourage car use.

“For example, instead of making proper provision for vehicles, precious road space is given to other transport modes under the Orwellian claim of ‘improving choice’.

“I hope that the competition will open many eyes to the best and worst practices and be a catalyst for more public debate on the issues.”
