The UK fuel tax protests of September 2000 generated considerable debate about fuel prices and taxation and put transport in the media spotlight. Away from the immediate events and debates surrounding the protests, the experience offered the opportunity for longer term lessons on transport to be gained. The editors of this volume, Glenn Lyons and KironChatterjee, saw the opportunity to get fresh insight into car dependence and conducted a large-scale travel behaviour survey to find out how car users coped when restricted in being able to buy petrol. This book presents their findings and collects together articles written by other researchers on a range of topics including fuel taxation, transport pricing, policy acceptability, travel behaviour and goods distribution.

Author Biography: About the Editors: Dr Lyons has been working in the field of transport research for ten years. His main interest is in travel behaviour and telecommunications-transport interactions. In particular he continues to address the development of traveller information systems and the role of the Internet. He is also exploring the relationship between transport, electronic communications and social exclusion. Lyons is the Director of the Transport Visions Network - a virtual distributed community of over 250 young professionals who are exploring the future of transport. A series of reports from this venture are being published by Landor.
After taking a degree in Aeronautics and Astronautics, Dr Kiron Chatterjee joined the University of Southampton's Transportation Research Group in 1990. He completed a PhD in 1995 on the topic of statistical models of accidents at road junctions. Since then he has carried out research on the impacts of driver information which has been used to advise on the appropriate use of this technology. His main research interest now is understanding travel behaviour and forecasting future levels of travel demand. He sees this as crucial in developing future transport policy.

Editorial Reviews

In September of 2000, UK farmers, truck drivers, and others whose livelihoods are affected by the price of gasoline copied their counterparts in France in initiating widespread protests that resulted in massive fuel shortages throughout the country. Lyons and Chatterjee (both of the Tranportation Research Group, U. of Southampton, UK) present 14 papers, from academics specializing in transport studies and related topics, that examine various facets of the fuel-tax protests. The papers are organized into sections that look at the underlying issues that precipitated the protests, discuss empirical issues of car use and commercial vehicle fleets, and reflect on lessons that can be learned for the fuel crisis in the areas of taxation and transportation policy.
