The French government has told motorists to make sure their tyres were properly inflated and to cut their speed after ruling out a reduction in fuel taxes.
However, the FairFuelUK campaign is continuing to gather political momentum in the run up to the UK Budget on March 23 2011 with at least 135 MPs backing the cause.
Now as the deadline for the Governments announcement on fuel tax speeds closer, motorists who want to support the campaign can go to FairFuelUK's website and sign the online petition.
Launched in 1997, etyres is the UK's first online tyres retailer. It operates a mobile fitting service, which means customers can have their tyres fitted at a location of their choice - either at their home or place of work.
Its low overheads mean the price customers pay is always low - up to 40% cheaper than the leading high street tyre depots on a wide range of tyres, from premium to budget brands.
