As drivers continue to look for ways to save money during the recession, the number of people to sign up to the UK's largest car-sharing scheme has hit 300,000.
The figure represents almost 1% of the nation's 33.8 million drivers, a significant statement on how car-sharing is becoming widely accepted and increasingly embraced as a mainstream form of transport.
"I am really pleased with car-sharing," said Tony Woodward, a member who joined the Liftshare network in October. "I was paying £60 a week in petrol driving from Congleton to Altrincham on my own - a round trip of 50 miles. Now I share with three guys and I pay just £15 a week - and have three new friends who live in my home town."
