Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

• The European Commission is drafting a proposal to make the physical check ing of speed limiters, possibly on a rolling road, part of the annual vehicle test.

Some EC states want a more elaborate check on speed limiters to be incorporated into the biennial tachograph test, but the UK and France are against this.

The Commission is consulting the transport industry on the cast implications of such a move. It also plans to modify the annual test by setting standard efficiency criteria for brakes.

11 Pressure is growing for an ECwide driver licence penalty points system, following problems faced by international lorry drivers because of variations in national systems. However, the Commission is resisting the plan, saying that individual countries should be left to decide their own penalties for errant truck drivers.
