COVID-19 UK: Safety, Health and Environment Regulatory - Motor Crime Team - Coronavirus June Update

The rapid global spread of COVID-19 has severely affected the transport and logistics industry's ability to continue under the financial strain. The response to the pandemic by communities, companies and governments has impacted every individual’s way of life, as well as the lives of our local, regional and global transportation systems. However, with the recent relaxation of lockdown rules, businesses can start to consider getting back to work.

In our June 2020 update, we consider:

  • Ending relaxation of driver hours;
  • Changes to road transport rules;
  • Restarting of heavy vehicles testing;
  • Resumption of Traffic Commissioner hearings;
  • Restarting driving lessons, theory tests and driving tests;
  • New powers granted to Councils to protect cyclists;
  • Annual safety statistics published by European Transport Safety Council; and
  • Proposals to increase policing of the roads.
