Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

drivers during the summer season caused a controversy among MEPs last month, with Labour members branding the plan "potentially very dangerous".

A reduction from 90 hours per fortnight to 72 hours was proposed by the Parliament's transport committee in a report on the planned changes in EEC driving time and tachograph rules.

Tory MEP John Marshall said the 72-hour rest period could apply to coach drivers operating non-regular international services during the tourist season from March 1 to September 30.

he told CM: "The present restrictions are ignored anyway — in West Germany for example. Forty per cent of the drivers stopped in a recent check were breaking the tachograph regulations."
