Tachos & Speed Limiters for up to 3500kg

It’s bullshit. The EU directive that brought in compulsory speed limiters for 3.5-7.5t vehicles was passed in 2002 after 2 or 3 years of discussions and it still won’t be fully implemented until next January. As far as I’m aware there isn’t even a draft directive under discussion for the introduction of speed limiters for vans under 3.5t and even if there was you’d be talking at least 5 years in the future before they did anything about it.

The UK could always go it alone and pass our own legislation without an EU directive but they’d go through a full consultation process first and they haven’t even made noises about it being on the agenda.
