New rules on drivers' working conditions and fair competition in road transport

Mon, 04 Jun 2018

The Transport Committee has approved updated EU rules to fight illegal practices in road transport and to help improve drivers' employment conditions. The rules are: more checks to crack down on fraud in the road haulage sector; clearer rules on remuneration of drivers; and allowing drivers to complete a return journey if they are close to the operating base, as long as extra rest time is added to the following rest period by way of compensation.
