The RAC Report on Motoring is an annual publication first launched in 1988 and has become widely regarded as the voice of Britain's motorists. This year's report is available here.


The RAC Report on Motoring 2010 is based on the views of 1,150 drivers in Britain and provides a snapshot of motorists' attitudes and behaviour with regard to their vehicles, the road network, Government transport policy, and other drivers.
