There have been many recent industry reports on the news that the coalition government might be about to put the brakes on the planned 80MPH speed limit for the UK’s motorways due to the potential forecast cost of an extra £1billion per year to UK tax payers.
This speculation has been highlighted in the motoring industry news and the UK daily press following recent comments from new Transport Secretary Patrick McLoughlin where he said ‘safety is paramount’. Recent findings have shown that raising the speed limit to 80MPH on UK motorways, would potentially lead to significant journey time savings, but would raise CO2 levels.
For those owners or drivers who work within the transport industry who are looking to lower their CO2 levels, why not chose new Ford vans which feature the new 99bhp 1.0-litre EcoBoost petrol engine or the 1.6-litre Duratorq TDCi diesel engine, as seen in the new Connect Transit van? New Ford vans could make a significant reduction in your business’s annual running costs, so have a look at what your local commercial Ford dealer can offer you.
