Quick Hit: Eco-Driving

01 Sep 2006

Quick Hits are a series of proposed initiatives developed by the Demand Reduction theme of the UK Energy Research Centre. They are intended to make a useful contribution in reducing carbon emissions by 2010, and are designed to be relatively easily for the Governmen or local authorities to implement. Legislative changes or expenditure needed would be small in nature, hence the title 'Quick Hits'.

This proposed Quick Hit would see energy-efficient driving, also known as eco-driving or eco-safe driving, incorporated into the practical driving test, to reinforce advice currently covered by the theory test.
