This report summarises people attitudes towards climate change and the impact of transport in Great Britain. It is based on a module of questions sponsored by the Department for Transport on the Office for National Statistics Opinions Opinion survey in August 2011 and August 2010.
Summary data are also available for modules of questions asked in the Opinion (and formerly Omnibus) Surveys in August 2009, August 2008, February 2008, August 2007, April 2007 and August 2006.
The report covers the following issues:

- Support for policy options to help encourage such a change in behaviour.
