UK position on driving hours and digital tachographs criticised

  • August 25, 2020

The EU Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier has criticised the UK government for refusing to accept EU rules on working time and digital tachographs for UK lorries driving in EU Member States.  

He was speaking following the latest Brexit negotiations round earlier this month. 

Mr Barnier said allowing UK drivers to follow different rules would undermine the single market and be unfair to EU Member States.  He underlined that the rules were important for road safety.
