Raising the costs of motoring do not benefit the environment

“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.
