In October 2023, this government announced the Plan for Drivers, setting out 30 measures that improve the experience of driving through smoother journeys: stopping unfair enforcement, easier parking, cracking down on inconsiderate driving and helping the transition to zero-emission driving.

We continue to implement these measures, taking action to ensure drivers are treated fairly.

These measures demonstrate our intent that drivers should be treated fairly, and the wishes of local people taken into account when decisions on traffic management are considered by local authorities. Further action on these measures and others in the Plan for Drivers will be announced later this year.
