Letter: In brief

Sir: It is all very well for Michael Gwilliam, on behalf of the Civic Trust and 15 other excellent organisations, to press the Government "to deliver an absolute reduction in road traffic" (letter, 18 June) ; but can they tell that government how to do it without losing the next election? Steven Norris, erstwhile Tory transport minister, rightly summed up the car-driving mentality as "Touch my car and I'll slash your face." This government has already failed to abolish hunting, and car driving is the urban equivalent.
