Conservative Press release: 25th April

Drivers say motoring has worsened under Labour

Commenting on a RAC survey which concludes that most drivers feel that motoring has worsened since Labour came to power, the Shadow Transport Secretary, Tim Yeo said:

“Mr Blair’s Government pledged to reduce congestion by 5 per cent by 2010 but this was all talk.  Instead, congestion has risen and road conditions have deteriorated.  There is also the suspicion that speed cameras are not saving lives but boosting revenue for Safety Camera Partnerships.

“The Conservative Party is determined to end Labour’s war on the sensible motorist and ease congestion on our roads.

“We will establish a congestion relief fund, from which local authorities will bid for money for local schemes and construct extra road space at key congestion hot-spots. We will look to build new roads with private sector help.

“Only traffic police can catch the most dangerous drivers.  By recruiting 5,000 thousand more police, each year, we will make it possible for chief constables to restore the number of traffic police to the level we left behind in 1997. We will abolish the Safety Camera Partnerships and review every speed camera and speed limit to encourage confidence in speed limits.”
