Weights and dimensions of road vehicles in the EU

10-04-2014

The European Commission has proposed a revision of the rules on the weights and dimensions of road vehicles, in order to allow more energy-efficient, aerodynamic vehicles to be put on the market, and to improve road safety. But some aspects of the proposals have proved contentious. Parliament is due to vote on the proposals during the April II part-session.
