Brexit: Respecting drivers’ working conditions

Road Transport between the UK and the Continent is essential but, unless professional drivers are guaranteed a smooth border crossing and a prompt and regular return home, less and less of them will be willing to transport goods and people across the Channel. In view of the new Brexit agreement, the ETF is keeping a close eye on developments and working to ensure the wellbeing of our drivers.

Enforcing the rules of the road
