** Note: 26MB PDF download ** The 2016 RAC Report on Motoring covers a wide range of topics, from hardy perennials such as the price of fuel and the state of both local and major roads, to more contemporary issues like the dangers of smartphone use and motorists’ views on the introduction of driverless vehicles.
This year’s RAC Report on Motoring paints a comprehensive picture of drivers’ views on topics they think are most important, such as the condition of the nation’s roads, fuel prices and the tax burden they face, as well as road safety and vehicle technology.
This year’s RAC Report on Motoring, introduced by Suzi Perry, explores British motorists’ relationship with their car and with motoring in general. It examines motorists’ behaviours, attitudes and beliefs to paint the most detailed and accurate picture yet of what makes drivers in Motoring Britain today tick.
In this, the 25th edition of the RAC’s Report on Motoring, we take a look back at the past quarter of a century at attitudes and opinion on the UK’s roads. And with 30 million drivers relying on their cars for day-to-day transport, we also reveal the key issues facing our motoring population in 2013.
There are 30 million drivers in the UK, many of whom use their car each day for commuting to work, transporting their families and carrying out social activities. 2012's Report on Motoring provides a comprehensive snapshot of their behaviour and attitudes to motoring.
The RAC Report on Motoring 2011 reveals drivers are resigned to the fact that nothing is going to change. The ‘war on motorists’ is said to have ended, but it has been replaced with a ‘cold war’. The cost of motoring continues to rise far in excess of inflation. Drivers are focused on cutting costs and surviving until the economy improves.
The RAC Report on Motoring 2010 shows motorists are becoming more inward-looking. They are more concerned about their home and local area than national or global issues and their energy is being spent on using what resources they have in the most cost-efficient and effective way.
The 2009 report shows starkly the effect the current economic climate is having on motorists. The emerging theme this year is one of increasing disengagement. Motorists do not feel connected with the big issues of the day such as the environment, traffic management and road pricing.
