The government intends to influence driving behaviour through more stringent enforcement of speed limits, increased tyre pressure, and in-car instruments such as cruise control and econo-meters. Increased tyre pressure reduces fuel consumption by reducing friction between the car and the road surface and is expected to contribute 0.3 million tonnes of CO2 savings. At present, tyre pressure is too low in about half of all cars. Driving behaviour of truck drivers is targeted with in-company training and education courses.
