Herts County Council is encouraging drivers to see the benefits of car sharing.

National Liftshare Week has been running this week and is designed to help motorists halve their fuel costs and reduce road congestion.

The free Herts Liftshare scheme helps link drivers up with other people making the same journey.

Cabinet member for highways Terry Douris said: “I hope drivers will be encouraged to give it a go. Once people see the financial savings they’ll wonder why they didn’t try sooner.”
