Gigaliner and road safety – Car drivers and cyclists join forces.

Aktualisiert: 28. Mai 2019

Joint Position from EAC European Automobile Clubs and ECF European Cyclists’ Federation.

The European umbrella associations of national cyclists’ and automobile clubs have joined forces against the permission of longer lorries on European roads and today publish a joint position paper. The action of the two associations is due to the rumored announcement by Siim Kallas of a re-interpretation of EU law by the Commission which would enable trials of cross border traffic of longer LHVs to be allowed. This could bring about a chain reaction. Lowered haulage prices in areas that have LHV’s would force other countries to follow suit. Allowing cross border traffic therefore would force a Europe-wide allowance of Gigaliners. This could have serious implications for road safety.
