In the context of European Mobility Week 2010, the Abertis Foundation and FESVIAL (the Spanish Road Safety Foundation) organised a study entitled Drivers and environmentally friendly, efficient driving to find out about the habits of Spanish drivers and to learn the extent of their awareness and how informed they were on the subject. The research consisted of a survey of 1,575 habitual drivers from all over Spain.
According to the survey data, over half of drivers (56.1%) are personally concerned about efficient, environmentally friendly and economical driving, especially those aged 45-54, and they would be willing to change their behaviour if shown how. In addition, four out of every ten drivers feel that they have not been given enough information on environmentally friendly and efficient driving. In turn, the majority of motor vehicle users (86.9%) believe that future drivers should be given and required to possess greater knowledge about environmentally friendly, efficient driving.
