The book contains two reviews concerned with road transport and gives references to sources of statistical material, where data may be obtained and what are the limitations to their use. Each review presents a brief summary of the activity and detailed information on statistical sources. A subject index to each review lists textual references. The first review "Road Passenger Transport" (Munby,D) covers all inland transport on land in Great Britain except railways. The review is in four sections: the organization of passenger transport; sources of road passenger statistics; information on pedestrians, bicycles, cars, motorcycles, taxis, public transport and regional statistics; and, comments on the adequacy of the statistics. The second review "Road goods Transport" (Watson,A) reviews sources of information on goods transport covering carriage for reward and carriage 'on own account'. The data review covers characteristics and organization; licensing and regulations; trade associations; importance relative to other transport; and, statistical reporting. (TRRL)
