Rapid increase in Swiss fines for freight trucks

Tags: , ,


An increasing number of freight vehicles are being stopped for motoring offences at border crossings into Switzerland.
Some 100 drivers were caught drink-driving.

“Most drivers come from Eastern Europe, where working conditions are getting worse,” Jon Pult, president of the Alpine Initiativeexternal said. “It’s understandable that exploited drivers can’t take rest periods into account.”

An initiative was passed in 1994 to reduce the number of freight vehicles travelling through Switzerland to no more than 650,000. But last year the number was still 975,000, despite rail routes being improved for freight.

Last year the Federal Council confirmed that Switzerland would not be able to achieve the 650,000 limit by the end of this year, despite more freight being transported by rail.
