Furthermore, new and better working time regulations in the transport industry were unanimously decided in accordance with an EU requirement. According to these, the weekly rest period may no longer be spent in the vehicle in the future. Rest periods must be planned in such a way that they can be spent at home at least once a month. Employers can be penalized for violations.

The existing ban on drivers not being paid based on the distance traveled or the amount of goods transported is being extended. In the future, it should not be allowed to reward them based on the speed of delivery. In addition, the obligation to carry driver records will be extended to 56 days from 2025.
