Italy grappling with cutbacks to 'auto blu' government cars


(ANSA) - Rome, August 13 - Cutting back Italy's notorious
fleet of "auto blu" government cars, which routinely zip through
traffic lights and regularly ignore highway speed limits, is
expected to save some 280 million euros, but many public offices
are behind schedule in meeting reduction targets.
According to government monitoring authority Formez, some
44% of public administrations had not yet implemented cuts to
their fleets as of June.
Public expenditure on chauffeured cars in 2011 reached 1.2
billion euros, of which 73% is for personnel costs.
Since 2009, following a government decree which aimed to
cut down the cost of the fleet, outlays have decreased by 15.9%,
according to Formez, or 10.5% excluding personnel costs.
In absolute terms, compared with 2009, public outlays for
"auto blu" dropped by over 200 million euros a year, and is
forecast to reach 280 million euros in 2012, including the fleet
cuts carried out in the first half of this year.
