Drivers of SUVs may soon be hit with higher taxes as part of a range of measures to reduce private car use.

The Government wants to cut car journeys by 20 per cent by 2030 and has come up with 35 so-called 'polluter pay' proposals.

Higher parking fees, removing on street parking spaces and incentives to car pool are among the proposals.

Insurance companies would also be encouraged to offer lower premiums to those who drive less.

While there are also proposals for cars to be taxed based on their size or how environmentally friendly they are.

Local councils will also have the power to introduce congestion charges under the measures.

The proposals will open for public consultation in April.
