weekly rests in the cab

THE FTA is disappointed that the European Parliament has decided not to reverse the ban on drivers taking their regular weekly rests in the cab even though the lack of appropriate facilities makes it virtually impossible to comply with the ban.

EU Member States should push for flexibilities on this rule, to be applied when drivers park in safe and secure parking areas with reasonable levels of comfort and services. Most importantly they should invest and incentivise private investors to upgrade the network of truck parking areas across Europe.
