Derogation on driving and rest time rules expires on Sunday


The Road Safety Authority (RSA) is reminding haulage operators that the temporary derogation from certain EU driving and rest times rules for the drivers of commercial vehicles expires on Sunday, May 31.

From June 1, operators and drivers must comply with the normal rules applicable to driving and resting times for drivers of commercial vehicles.

The Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport and the RSA will maintain contacts with the road haulage representative associations and will continue to monitor on-going developments relating to any further exceptional measures that may be required in respect of the EU drivers’ hours rules in light of the pandemic.
