Rising fuel prices, reducing speed

Speed cameras are not as effective as the cost of filling up your vehicle at reducing motorists’ speed, new research by RoadPilot has revealed.

Almost half of UK motorists claim to have reduced their average speed in the past 12 months, with concern over rising fuel prices being the main motivation.

Thirty-three per cent of those questioned in the survey said fuel prices had caused them to slow down, and only 13 per cent claimed traffic enforcement was the reason.

Meanwhile, environmental concerns caused only ten per cent of motorists to reduce their speed.
