Question for written answer E-001842-19
to the Commission
Rule 130
Damiano Zoffoli (S&D)

 Subject:  Discrimination against Italian citizens with cars registered abroad
 Answer in writing 

Decree-Law No 132 of 1 December 2018 has amended traffic legislation and prohibits Italian citizens who live in Italy for more than 60 days to drive vehicles registered abroad; Italian nationals who are stopped when driving a vehicle registered abroad may therefore face heavy penalties and even have their vehicle seized.

There are many Italians who, for various reasons, own cars registered abroad which they use in Italy.

Can the Commission therefore answer the following questions:
1. Is this decree, which discriminates against Italian citizens who have bought a car in another Member State in which they work or study, compatible with the right to free movement and freedom of establishment in the European Union?
2. If it is, what does the Commission intend to do to put an end to this discrimination against Italian nationals?
