Maybe 'most people do not just want more roads', (Letters 23 May) but that could mean that they also want the existing roads well maintained and improved. What most drivers and their passengers want is to be able to use their cars more effectively.
I commuted to London by train years ago, but poor service meant I had to use my car. To my surprise, it was quicker, less hassle and I could carry any number of documents, so I never went back to trains.
Office buildings were then required by planning laws to provide car parks. Now they are to be taxed. So much for planning.
There is, however, a finite limit to the number of drivers in UK, so perhaps we should plan for them, not trail some 25 years behind.
