The new transport minister, Philip Hammond, has pledged to end Labour's "war on motorists" by clamping down on speed cameras, clamping firms and plans for road charging.
Hammond said, "Motoring has got to get greener, but the car is not going to go away."
He also confirmed that the coalition government will halt funding to fixed-position speed cameras. Councils can still fund the cameras, but any money earned will go to the Treasury.
Hammond has also pledged to curb unlicensed clamping firms, and - in a move that is at odds with the Liberal Democrats' pre-election pledges - ruled out the introduction of road charging plans.
However, he refused to rule out charging tolls on new roads.
