Question for written answer E-002651-15
to the Commission
Rule 130
Daniel Dalton (ECR)

 Subject:  EU Driving Directive stipulations concerning people with type 1 diabetes
 Answer in writing 

I am a strong supporter of robust road safety legislation, but has the Commission compiled an assessment of the impact of EU driving directives on drivers with type 1 diabetes, and whether such measures are proportionate?

Sufferers of type 1 diabetes may face a driving ban, which is not always a measure proportionate to the risk associated with having the disease and can have a significant negative impact on people’s lives.
