For immediate release.
"Reducing congestion is a priority and should be tackled through improving the road infrastructure rather than the blunt and very expensive mechanism of price."The Drivers' Alliance mission statement asserts that freedom of individual mobility is a fundamental human right, a view that will find resonance with millions of motorists, and indeed the ABD of which Roberts remains a member.
"The notion that driving a car is either a crime or the sole prerogative of the rich is abhorrent yet current political policy is saying precisely that, while taking us headlong into a scenario reminiscent of the former Soviet Union 2. This is a disaster for families and individual quality of life, and the economy, and needs all the opposition we can muster. We welcome the additional input that the Drivers' Alliance will make in support of this country's over-taxed and unjustly treated motorists."
