No real surprises here - IPSOS Survey

"... public back action to encourage cycling and public transport but remain attached to their cars"

ian:
The only way to discourage car use is to make car use less convenient and/or more expensive. The end.

It's a phrasing thing, but I feel it should be described as  'making people responsible for the true costs (externalities) of running a car' rather than just making it more expensive as that sounds vindictive. The big problem is that you can run a car, and the harms to the environment, people's health, loss of space are not accounted for in your costs of doing so.

Cudzoziemiec:
Or even more so that we think it should be allowable if "paid for".

Peter:
I've always had fairly discouraging cars and have used them as little as possible.
