Road Transport: Commission proposes to adapt rules on driving and rest times for drivers of occasional bus and coach services
The European Commission proposed to adopt EU rules on breaks and rest periods for drivers to better reflect the nature of occasional bus and coach services. Drivers in this sector have a different work rhythm than freight or regular passenger transport due to high seasonality and varying driving distances depending on passengers’ tourist activities.
More fair play in the transport and logistics sector – An end to social dumping on the German and EU roads.
Put an end to social dumping, increase penalties for violations, allow driving at 17, reduce bureaucracy in driving licences – how Germany’s Traffic Light coalition groups want to strengthen the transport and logistics sector.
What must happen now?
Changes for the professional drivers’ from February 2nd 2022, the border crossings must be documented on the tachograph.
After crossing the border, the driver must enter the symbol or the country name at the next possible stop at or after the border and not, as was previously the case, manually enter it in the tachograph at the delivery location.
