Encourage drivers to journey share


My home is close to a motorway interchange and everyday there are around 10 to 20 cars parked on the verge next to the hedgerow. Clearly the drivers are sharing the 160km journey to London with someone else.

Emminently sensible.

Why don't we encourage it?

Why not build 'free' car parks near motorway junctions with lighting and video surveillance cameras and encourage people to double up?

This of course all goes against the current craze of persecuting the motorist, who would travel by other means if something reliable and economic was available.
