Internalising external costs of transport

ESC Position paper (April 2008)
“As an organisation representing the interests of users of transport services, the ESC would not be defending one mode of transport above another….The ESC agrees that the European Commission has to take action to reduce external costs of transport modes, but we would suggest the following basic requirements: the revenue generated must go toward solving the problem; all transport modes need to pay for the external costs; keep in mind the costs already paid.”
