Operators are in danger of letting the chance to make changes to EU drivers’ hours slip through their fingers, by failing to respond to a Europe-wide consultation, warns the Confederation of Passenger Transport (CPT).
A consultation on future drivers’ hours legislation has been widely circulated to operators via the CPT, but it says â€œthe response to date has been very slow.â€
Says the CPT: â€œThe International Road Transport Union (IRU) is involved in a consultation on the current EU drivers’ hours rules; basically what works and what doesn’t.
â€œWe know that there are certain areas that both operators and drivers are concerned about and would welcome change.
â€œNow is your chance to have that say.â€
The survey is a short online form and is aimed at both drivers and operators.
Adds the CPT: â€œThe hope is it will help steer any future changes to drivers’ hours and could be advantageous.
â€œBut without any meaningful comment, there’s unlikely to be any significant change, so it’s put up or shut up.â€
