Austria: weekend rest in cabin prohibited
The chairman of Transitforum Austria thinks it is unacceptable that thousands of drivers should illegaly spend their regular weekly rest in the Inn Valley, which is a protected area, specifically against noise and air pollution.
“We have submitted a formal motion with the Department of Transport Law in the Tirol Regional Government requesting that the Traffic Police in cooperation with the Health and Safety Inspectorate should take measures ensuring immediate and strict enforcement of Regulation (EC) No 561/2006, which forbids commercial drivers to spend their weekly rest (45h) within the entire road network of Tirol and in service areas along A 12 and A 13 motorways.”
