Does car sharing lose popularity these days? You may not agree if the answer is “yes” especially if you are doing well with this practice of goodwill to some people. However, a new study would confirm that with bad driving habits and logistical reasons contributing to a more stressful commute have obscured the car-sharing popularity.
A new poll result has revealed that the car sharing revolution has been losing popularity these days in the United Kingdom (UK). There seem today to be many reasons why many people don’t anymore want to “car-share” to work. Some bad driving habits make it to the top of the list.
This study about the habits of commuting has been duly published coinciding with Peter Kay’s DVD launch of the sitcom about car share. The anti-social driving habits of many motorists featured at the DVD launch have now become the ultimate reason why motorists in the UK are choosing not to “car share.”
Figures released have shown that 72 % of motorists in Britain has never “car shared” whilst 18 % “car shared” every day. Those drivers who have bad driving habits reasoned out for not being in favour anymore to car share thus their sort of reasoning makes it to the top of the list of reasons for not wanting to “car share.”
However, the list goes on to reveal that many motorists said they didn’t like being out of control or be angry or having fear of waiting for someone which would make them late for work. On the other hand, a quarter of UK motorists said they wouldn’t “car share” with anybody who has a different taste in music.
Another reason why many drivers have declined to “car share” is that, whilst they enjoy a quiet time in the morning driving to work and there’s someone sitting beside who is too chatty and wouldn’t stop all the way is distractive and annoying.
The policy exchange think-tank called for car sharers earlier this year to be offered with tax breaks whilst elsewhere there are campaigners who have emphasised that commuting with their colleagues could really benefit the environment and consequently reduce congestion. Also, it is clearly a cost effective way if a motorist splits the cost with the other individuals on board the vehicle.
However, there is another common problem – those drivers who would avoid paying their share for the cost of fuel. But in some situations, this has been understood by many responsible colleagues because the driver shoulders the responsibility of running the vehicle with the utmost care for the passengers’ safety and sound travel.
The car share of Peter Kay, which was screened earlier this year, follows the car-sharing adventures of supermarket colleague John Redmond which was also played by Sian Gibson a.k.a. Kayleigh Kitson and Peter Kay himself.
Kay said the idea of car sharing of two people in going to work every day really appealed to him, because it allows the spiralling conversation about life to unwind in all of its glory, and then it is highlighting the comedy in the minutiae of every day trek.
