unstar this property answer text <p>The Government has no current plans to change the GB domestic drivers’ hours legislation applicable to drivers of local bus services. The existing legislation is both important and appropriate in ensuring the safety of drivers and others on the road. However, any further restrictions could risk imposing unreasonable burdens on industry, particularly as fatal accidents involving bus or coaches have been falling over time, from 120 in 2007 to 55 in 2017. It is worth noting that reported involvement in a fatal accident does not necessarily indicate fault or causation.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>The Government has provided guidance to motorists travelling in the EU after 29 March through various channels.</p><p> </p><p>The technical notice ‘Vehicle Insurance if there’s no Brexit Deal’ was published in September 2018. It outlines that, in the event of ‘no deal’ and the European Commission not taking a decision to allow the UK to remain in the Green Card-free area, drivers of UK registered vehicles will need to carry a motor insurance Green Card when driving in the EU and EEA. The guidance also encourages UK registered drivers towing a trailer to contact their insurer to obtain two Green Cards, one for their trailer and one for their towing vehicle.</p><p> </p><p>Guidance has also been published on trailer registration. UK motorists must register commercial trailers weighing over 750kg and non-commercial trailers weighing over 3,500kg before they can travel to or through most EU and EEA countries. UK motorists can also voluntarily register non-commercial trailers that weigh over 750kg. The Government issued new communications in February 2019, which echoed the guidance in the technical notice. The campaign is live with radio, digital ads and social media directing citizens to gov.uk.</p><p> </p><p>We continue to work constructively with the Motor Insurers’ Bureau, the Association of British Insurers and the rest of the insurance industry to ensure motorists are aware of these messages and are prepared for a ‘no deal’ scenario.</p><p> </p><p>On motor insurance, our intention is to remain part of the Green Card-free circulation area as the UK will continue to meet all of the requirements when we leave the EU. This would allow UK drivers to continue to be able to drive in EU Member States without the need for a Green Card. We continue to urge the Commission to issue a decision on the UK’s membership in the Green Card-free circulation zone.</p>
