Road users’ priorities for improvement: car and van drivers and motorcyclists

Transport Focus, the independent transport user watchdog, asked nearly 5000 car and van drivers and motorcyclists to rank their priorities for improvement. The results are broken down by type of vehicle, region, age, gender, disability and journey purpose and length.

Improved quality of road surfaces on England’s major roads are drivers’ top priority for improvement.

Safer design and maintenance of roads, better behaved drivers and the better management of roadworks are also in their top four priorities. However, improvements to road surfaces were much more important to car and van drivers and motorbikers than these other priorities.

This research is the first large-scale quantitative research the watchdog has carried out since starting to represent users of England’s major roads in March 2015.
