Commenting on today's publication of the latest national transport statistics*, Scottish Greens have expressed dismay at the continued absence of progress in bringing about the sustainable and affordable transport system that Scotland needs.
Greens argue that although there is a drop in overall traffic levels, this is most likely a result of the recession, rather than the impact of Government policies. Greenhouse gas emissions from transport as a proportion of total Scottish emissions now stand at 26.6%.**
