“The proposals published today by the European Commission will only raise the costs of motoring while not bringing any benefits to the environment” declared Wil Botman, Director-General of the FIA European Bureau. 

“A proper assessment of the so-called external costs is still outstanding. The study on which the European Commission bases its policy proposals is merely a compilation of research results obtained on the basis of wrong assumptions. Moreover, an internalisation without a cost-benefit analysis is a nonsense. The approach chosen by the European Commission is therefore not acceptable to the FIA” continued Wil Botman.
