"Philip's Green Road Atlas Britain" is designed for the motorist who is striving to be environmentally friendly. A special 8-page 'Green' section includes the following: an overview of road transport in 2007, investigating the environmental and public health impact of road use, carbon and other dangerous emissions, air pollution, government commitments under the Kyoto Protocol, plus a table on key emissions; information on electric cars, hybrids, LPG and other alternative fuels, plus the ETA car buyer's guide and 2007 winners; how to modify your driving style and prepare your car, as well as planning your journeys, to be a 'green' motorist; and, how to calculate your carbon footprint, information on integrated travel and carbon offsets, plus details how to join ETA.Two case studies of individuals who 'drive green' are featured. The main body of the atlas includes 176 pages of road maps covering Britain at 3 miles to 1 inch (Scottish Highlands and Hebrides at 4.75 miles to 1 inch). The maps clearly mark service areas, roundabouts and multi-level junctions, and in rural areas distinguish between roads over and under 4 metres wide - a boon for drivers of wide vehicles.
Across the Channel, a full-page map shows Calais and Boulogne, and a double-page map shows the full extent of the northern French coast, including all ferry ports. The atlas also includes route-planning maps, M25 and M60 maps, distance table, 12 large-scale city approach maps with named arterial roads, and 55 extra-detailed town and city plans, airport plans and port plans.show more
