With the contribution of the LIFE programme of the European Union - LIFE14 ENV/GR/000611

The European Commission has adopted a series of rules applicable to road hauliers and road passenger transport operators. A common classification of serious road safety infringements under transport legislation is included, as well as new specifications for smart tachographs (the device that records driving times of lorry, bus and coach drivers) making the best use of new digital technologies. The objective is to enhance road safety, contribute to a fairer competition between road transport operators and to facilitate a consistent enforcement of EU rules across borders.
