Supplementary notes

*50% of the sample companies have 5-25 vehicles in the fleet; 25% of the sample have 26-50 vehicles and 25% of the sample have more than 51 vehicles. While this does not follow the pattern of licence holders in the UK precisely, it does reflect the disproportionate buying power of the larger fleets.
