EU transport ministers did not reach an agreement on the reduction of working hours for truckers.

EU transport ministers did not reach an agreement on the reduction of working hours for truckers. According to the European Transport Workers Federation (ETF), long working hours for truckers are the cause of 20 per cent of lorry traffic incidents. The Union had set up blockades in Luxembourg, urging transport ministers to take the necessary measures.

The French EU Presidency promised truckers an accord on the issue of working hours by December.
