(The Department of Transport says drivers should use 'common sense' to decide costs!) Arrangements for payment must be made before the journey begins. People with company cars should obtain the permission of their employer & it is not considered reasonable for them to charge running costs. As a guide, the latest AA figures suggest that a 1000- 1500cc car could cost up to 20.8p per mile and a 1500-2000cc up to 25.7p. more follows>>>

In national terms the Department of Transport calculates that 9 million people travel solo to work & if only 2% of them participated in a lift share scheme, overall annual running costs could be cut by over £30m and 12m gallons of fuel could be saved. more follows>>>
