This bulletin sets out how expenditure on roads has been allocated to vehicles for 1989/90. 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 among 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 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; (g) goods vehicles over 1.525 tonnes unladen: parameter values and numbers of vehicles: by goods vehicle subclass; (h) goods vehicles over 1.525 tonnes unladen: annual kilometres per vehicle, road costs and road taxation in 1989/90; and (i) road taxation revenue and road costs.
