Quote from Stephen Odell
Ford CEO Europe
Odell cites the European Commission's recently published the EU White Paper on the Future Transport Policy. “I have to say I found it to be a hugely disappointing document. The proposals outlined in the White Paper – which call for a 50% reduction in internal combustion-engined cars in urban areas by 2030, and a complete ban by 2050 – do not effectively address the issues of congestion and environmental improvement in urban areas. It also effectively proposes to ban cars from out-of-city traffic altogether, by suggesting that such travel should mainly be made by train. Such radical proposals require further discussion and reflection, and they need to respect the principles of technical neutrality and freedom of consumer choice."
