Driving the election: which way should motorists vote tomorrow?

Nic Cackett



With tomorrow's general election likely to come down to the wire it is a somewhat bewildering that the votes of 43 million motorists have not been courted more vigorously by the three main parties.

There are certainly no shortages of issues to focus on either. Road tax costs, speed cameras, petrol prices, congestion, illegal parking fines, drink-driving limits and future road pricing initiatives are all factors which impact on our daily lives.

Of course even if they haven't been shouting about it, all the political parties have a view on the subject. In a grey area marked transport they have dropped hints, groped for common ground or even pledged a bright idea. So before you make your way to the ballot box tomorrow be sure to read our break down of the motoring manifesto.
