The government has suspended the controls by state authorities to check whether foreign drivers are being paid the minimum wage of €8.50 an hour. Several governments have urged Berlin to change the system and have complained to Brussels, where the European Commission opened a preliminary case to look into whether the legislation complies with European law. The European Commission is assessing whether or not it hinders free movement of goods and services.
