Regulations on driving and rest periods

Drivers are subject to strict regulations on driving and rest periods. These regulations may be relaxed if the additional demand for transport services for the commercial transport of vital goods during a supply shortage cannot otherwise be met.

The road transport companies must apply in advance to FONES’ Logistics Division to confirm the necessity of this measure. They can then apply for the driving and rest period regulations to be relaxed.

This measure is founded on the legal provisions issued by the Federal Roads Office (FEDRO) and is closely coordinated with this office.
