Euro Parliament agrees new truck size rules

[ February 24, 2015   //   ]

The European Parliament’s Committee on Transport endorsed revised regulations on truck weights and dimension on 24 February, in a compromise worked out with the Council.Maximum weight for trucks using alternative fuels such as hybrid or electric engines would be raied by a tonne and longer overall lengths would be allowed for trucks fitted with retractable aerodynamic fittings. The new regulations would also eventually allow rounder, safer cab profiles.
