Politics and motoring go hand in hand, and on Thursday 8 June, when the British public votes in the general election, both face the potential for drastic change.
To gauge how the election results could impact motoring in Britain, we ask the country's three leading politcal parties 10 key questions.
DOES YOUR PARTY SUPPORT MOTORISTS?
Yes. Under Theresa May’s strong and stable leadership, we will always be guided by what matters to the ordinary, working people.
We do. Driving is the nation’s main and most favoured form of transport, and ensuring that motorists are supported is vital for securing economic growth and prosperity. We will support motorists and the automotive industry at every point.
We need investment in the roads to ensure that vehicles can keep travelling the length and breadth of the country. But there is too much congestion on our roads and we would like to see this eased by encouraging motorists onto other means of transport where possible.
WHAT'S YOUR POLICY ON DIESEL EMISSIONS?
In the government’s May 2017 draft Air Quality Strategy, proposals included additional funding and regulatory changes to support alternatively fuelled vehicles, ‘Real Driving Emissions’ tests and scrappage schemes.
We will tackle the air quality crisis with a robust clean air strategy involving challenging emissions reduction targets, a network of Clean Air Zones across the country and the introduction of schemes targeted at removing the most polluting buses.
Air quality has become a public health crisis and that is why we need to start looking at solutions to the problems created by NO2 emissions. We have set out a clear plan to introduce a scrappage scheme and to ban all diesel cars and small vans from UK roads by 2025.
