For immediate release.
The 'war on the motorist' has not been ended as promised. Instead, branches of central and local government are promoting measures that can only be described as "anti-car". They seem sold on the idea of discouraging personal mobility.It can be downloaded from the ABD website [pdf].
Britain's drivers deserve better from our public servants, which is why the Alliance of British Drivers (ABD) has teamed up with NMAG (National Motorists' Action Group) to produce a Motorists' Charter.
This puts forward some reasonable demands, such as getting the roads we've paid for, adequate parking facilities and generally fairer treatment for drivers. I urge drivers to read it over the holiday period.
Since the last general election, the RAC has warned of growing driver discontent. If the authorities won't respect their views, the problems won't go away, and neither will Britain's drivers, over 30 million of whom have votes. 3Full details, including a short video on YouTube.
The ABD competition, "Does Your Council Give You the Hump?" has already had some interesting nominations for Best and Worst Council.
I encourage everyone to have their say before it closes on 31st August. You could win a top prize of £200, with two £50 prizes for the runners-up".
