45 hours weekly rest for truck drivers in Germany

Germany has with effect from May 24th, 2017, prohibited drivers from spending their 45 hour rest in the trucks. In this regard, there are notified checks/penalties for Haulier and drivers. We are not yet aware of the consequences of this from the German authorities, but will of course provide ongoing updates on our website regarding the consequences of these new legislative interventions.
