Motorists would prefer to pay car park costs rather than have to use public transport to get to work, according to a new survey.
Car supermarket firm Motorpoint found four out of five drivers would pick up a bill for travelling in rather than hop on a bus or train.
According to the company’s managing director David Shelton, a number of people pick up vehicles with work-use in mind.
Drivers simply do not think that the services on offer are good enough, he added.
Mr Shelton said: "Unless this poor perception of public transport changes, our customers are going to be left without a real choice and may be forced into paying an unwanted tax."
Earlier this year, motorists in the UK registered their displeasure at government plans to introduce a road-charging system.
Some 1.8 million people signed a 10 Downing Street website petition against the move.
