Nearly a third (28%) of British motorists are planning to drive less in 2012 and intend to walk or cycle more, according to a recent Be Wiser Insurance poll.

Mark Bower-Dyke, chairman of Be Wiser Insurance, comments:

"While it might just be a case that some wanted to lose that last bit of Christmas weight before spring finally arrives - it's more likely that motorists are hoping to reduce motoring costs as much as they can. With petrol and diesel costs remaining at a high level the quickest and easiest way to save money is by driving less or driving more efficiently"
 
Over a fifth (22%) said that they will be trying to drive more economically over the coming year.
 
"Driving more efficiently can save on fuel and driving within the speed limits (rather than exceeding them) will always produce an increase in fuel efficiency – and thus a saving in fuel costs. In addition to saving on fuel, everyone staying within the speed limits is a safer driver and will not incur expensive speeding penalty fines."
 
Another way some motorists suggested they'd reduce costs is to pay less for car insurance, a fifth (20%) said they planned to do this in 2012.
 
Mark Bower-Dyke comments:
 
"We are already starting to see some insurance companies reducing the cost of their policies so it's always good to shop around for alternative quotes. Be Wiser Insurance act for over 30 of the UK's largest insurance companies, so one call to Be Wiser could be a good money-saver."
