PRICEY DRIVING

pounds OWNING a car in Britain costs pounds 416 a month on average says Prudential, with the annual bill coming to pounds 4,992. That's pounds 642 more than in Spain and pounds 513 higher than in France. It's partly because British drivers pay higher road taxes and more for their fuel and service costs.

CAT ROAD TOLL

pounds A CAT is run over every two and a half minutes, according to pet insurance provider Petplan. Bristol is Britain's cat accident blackspot, with London coming a close second. The average vet bill for treatment of road traffic accident injuries is pounds 500.
