  • Megatrucks decision raises doubts, says MEP

    The decision by the EU transport commissioner Siim Kallas to allow so-called ‘megatrucks’ to cross EU borders raises doubts about whether the Commission takes its role as the guardian of EU treaties seriously.


    That is the view of Michael Cramer, a Green MEP, who wrote a letter to the European Voice saying Kallas’s ‘reinterpretation’ of EU legislation has far-reaching implications for the credibility of the Commission’s transport policy.

    Cramer says the move will undermine rail transport and the EU democratic decision-making process, and is ‘the exact opposite of what we should be doing to develop a more sustainable transport system’.
