The minister of transport and communications addressed the members of the European Commission in order to request for additional evaluation of the German law on minimal wages entering as of 1 January 2015. According to the minister the law creates additional financial and administrative burden for road carriers. The Commission was requested to ascertain a compliance with EU law. In addition, the minister expressed his concern that a number of restrictive measures were introduced in recent years, creating more barriers for free movement of goods and services. As an example the legislation implying restrictions for a regular weekly rest on board of the vehicles adopted by France and Belgium was mentioned.
