This bulletin sets out how expenditure on roads has been allocated to vehicles for 1990/91. The general procedure is to take a rolling average of the expenditure by both central and local government on providing, maintaining and policing roads, to allocate this expenditure amongst road users according to the "responsibility" each type of user has for causing the expenditure and then to compare the costs which have been allocated by this method with the motoring tax revenue (fuel duty and vehicle excise duty) expected to be collected from the users. Tables are provided for: a) roads expenditure; b) road costs; c) maintenance costs; d) kilometres of vehicle classes, by road class; e) road costs per thousand parameter units; f) parameter values, parameter units and road costs, classified by vehicle class and parameter; g) goods vehicles over 3.5 tonnes gvw: i) parameter values and numbers of vehicles and ii) annual kilometres per vehicle, road costs and road taxation, both by goods vehicle subclass; and h) road taxation revenue and road costs, by vehicle class.
