Motorpoint website poll: most drivers against city centre diesel bans

Over 80 per cent of motorists are against current plans to ban diesel cars from city centres according to a new survey by Motorpoint. The poll from the car retailer found 84 per cent of people quizzed were opposed to plans by local authorities that could see Bristol become the first city in the UK to create a ‘Clean Air Zone’ and stop drivers of diesel cars using roads in certain parts of the city centre at selected times. Some 989 motorists took part in the poll on the Motorpoint website.
