Find a car: Public transport 'depends on private vehicles'Feb 04 2011, 05:07 PM
Public transport cannot complete some tasks which a private car could do.
People who find a new car have been told of the important effect that these vehicles have on public transport.
Keith Peat, founder of the Driver's Protest Union, acknowledged that there is a "lot of deceit" recently in an attempt to persuade drivers to get out of their motors and onto trains and buses.
However, he pointed out that these modes of transport cannot obtain certain tasks, such as individuals carrying a wealth of goods that they need.
"The fact of the matter is that public transport depends on the private car to make the links," Mr Peat explained.
His comments come after research recently conducted by moneysupermarket.com found that 67 per cent of those who find a car have had to change their habits when behind the wheel, with five per cent admitting they no longer drive.
Only 16 per cent of car owners have said they have changed nothing about the way that they operate their vehicle, as a result of rising motoring costs.
