The RAC has put together a journey through time to show how motoring has changed since the start of the Report on Motoring 30 years ago!
Some of our highlights from the report are:
In 1988, 29% of people advised they would particularly look for rear seatbelts, next time they bought a car!
In 1991, it became compulsory for adults to wear seat belts in the rear of the vehicle!
In 1994, the Channel Tunnel passenger service opens!
In 2001, Aston Martin introduced the Vanquish, the first production Aston Martin that could hit 200mph!
In October 2003, the average cost of a litre of petrol was 76.34p!
In 2008, 92% of motorists thought that drivers in the UK had become more dependent on their cars and more car-focused than in 1988!
In 2015, drug-driving law in England and Wales was updated to include eight general prescription and 8 illicit drugs!
The 30th edition of the Report on Motoring has now been released, and you can download this and view the RAC’s entire journey through time here!
