Description:

The Dutch government aims to increase the passenger vehicle fleets fuel efficiency by optimizing driving behavior - so-called ecodriving - and encouraging a modal shift from passenger vehicles to other forms of transport. The transport efficiency strategy involves: - consumer information dissemination; - regulation (newly-stringent enforcement of speed limits); - fiscal incentives for the purchase of on-board fuel efficiency equipment; and - logistical improvements (information, education) to discourage passenger and commercial vehicle use.
