Driver's Union calls 3rd Driver protest action weekend. 1st April

As D.P.U, predicted the recent media focus on fuel prices has been a temporary diversion from more effective action and pump prices will hardly change. Drivers need to take effective action and be prepared to make fair deals on a range of issues.

PRLog - March 23, 2011 - SUTTON ON SEA, U.K. -- As the Driver's Protest Union (D.P.U) predicted last January, the Fair Fuel Campaign would achieve very little by the way of pump price reductions and exactly as we said then, all that the Chancellor could give drivers was a penny off a litre.

Keith Peat, founder of D.P.U. says ' It is what I feared. The fuel protest was a temporary diversion from other very serious driver issues and was a one trick pony. Drivers need to take effective action over a whole range of unfair treatment not just taxation'.

D.P.U. know that on taxation the Government's hands are tied but it can help the economy by helping it's drivers. Freeing them up. Less unfair prosecution. Cancelling the 2006 Speed Limit Review that creates more offenders from unscientific limits. De restricting duel carriageways. Taking the profiteering and vested interest from road safety. Getting the police to focus more on crime, genuine road safety alternatives and less on the prosecution of perfectly safe drivers via cameras.

The driver is a soft touch only because they are not united. D.P.U. has realised that the economy & big business is based around driving necessity and the private driver.

Keith, an ex patrol cop, says 'Big firms, who depend on the private driver, must be made to support the driver in return. Only then will drivers be able to show the government that the divide and rule era has ended for them.'

Our third Driver's Protest Weekend is called for April Fool's Weekend from Friday 1st April. We are calling all drivers to avoid all retail outlets and city centres as well as certain selected companies for those three days to demonstrate how important private drivers are to the economy.
