Mobility package: driving and rest time
The European Commission Mobility Package proposes a number of amendments to the driving and rest time rules (Regulation (EC) No 561/2006) and to the ‘smart’ tachograph regulation (Regulation (EU) 165/2014).  The proposed changes to the driving and rest time have never been subject to any consultation process in the past 3 years. Hence, their significant negative impact on road and passenger safety, as well as on pay, working and living conditions of bus, coach and truck professional drivers.
