The ACS opposes the CO2 Act. In contrast to the TCS, he considers higher gasoline and diesel prices to be unacceptable.

Just five years ago, the Swiss Automobile Club was facing a crucial test and made a name for itself mainly because of internal disputes and leadership quarrels. Politically, the organization had hardly any more weight. In the meantime, the ACS is taking care of politics again - as is currently the case with the fight against the CO2 law, which will be voted on in June.

This is unequal treatment between rural and urban populations.
Author: Thomas HurterACS President

ACS President and SVP National Councilor Thomas Hurter does not accept that the law should increase the price of petrol and diesel to finance climate protection projects: “This is unequal treatment between rural and urban populations. Between those who depend on a car and those who don't. It is anti-business. " Because many small and medium-sized companies in particular are dependent on vehicles.

TCS considers the foreseeable increase to be justifiable

The ACS is thus positioned differently from the Touring Club Switzerland (TCS). The largest mobility club in Switzerland regards the CO2 Act as an acceptable compromise and supports the proposal. The TCS assumes that the planned increase in fuel prices will remain within an acceptable range.

The ACS is happy to accept this clear difference of opinion. After the automobile club had already very actively collected signatures for the referendum, it now wants to get involved in the voting campaign against the law over the next two months.

ACS: innovation instead of steering

According to Hurter, the ACS sees itself as the organization that exclusively represents the interests of motorists. And this also pointedly: “We advocate a bourgeois course and are not so much a believer in the state. We have the feeling that the state should create the framework conditions, but not somehow steer or steer. "

We advocate a civic course.

Environmental protection is best served by innovations in industry and technology - and not by a climate fund or incentive taxes created by the state, emphasizes Hurter.

VCS accuses ACS of one-sided focus

Naturally, Michael Töngi, Green National Councilor and board member of the ecologically oriented VCS traffic club, sees it quite differently. As a political opponent, he takes the ACS very seriously, but has problems with its one-sided focus.

"I just have the impression that the ACS looks at the world very strongly through the windshield and does not have a wider perspective, which it would need now," explains Töngi. Especially in view of climate change and the traffic problems in cities and agglomerations, this is sorely needed.

The ACS wants to stay on its track. The club, which traditionally has many owners of luxury cars, sports cars and vintage cars, has 100,000 members.

Recently, more and more younger members have joined the group, underlines President Hurter. It is therefore clear to him: "You have to recognize that the automobile is and will remain an essential mode of transport in the future."

Therefore, the ACS will continue to campaign for the car. Nevertheless, there are certain shifts in emphasis: In previous years, the ACS had repeatedly advocated an increase in the speed limit on motorways. That is less of an issue today, says Hurter. Other political issues are much more important, such as a well-developed road infrastructure.

    A big reduction would probably result in a ban on unpaid cars on our streets ;-)

      I would be in favor of colored license plates, but I am not allowed to bring a color example because otherwise someone feels unequal and this would later lead to the cancellation of my comment.

    The CO2 levy on petrol and diesel is actually far too moderate to include all the environmental pollution caused, such as fine dust, oil leaks and tire wear. But the direction (polluter pays principle) is right, which is one of the reasons why I am in favor of the CO2 law.

      Either you do away with all taxes and insurance premiums and replace them with a price per liter that includes everything, because whoever drives more needs more and is longer in traffic (risk).
      What kind of car someone drives then no longer matters because everyone knows exactly how much he pays per liter / kWH.
      The freedom remains, only you have to think more carefully, or do I even want to, the prohibition culture is not a future model.

    It would be better to have a psycho and, above all, a reaction test every 5 years. Then 30% cars would be gone on the streets for a moment. Additional toll booths for the motorway exits to large cities such as ZH / BS / BE etc., with the exception of residents. The same for the largest main road accesses into the cities, so that it is not worthwhile to evade. Nobody knows why you have to be stuck in a traffic jam with a well-developed public transport system. Instead, on autobahn 140 and on certain routes out of town 100.

      No, people living there must then be forbidden from owning a car - there can be no füfi us Weggli.
