The Italian Ministry of Interior has issued a circular on penalties for truck drivers for spending a weekly rest in a cabin. The decision of the Italian ministry is a result of the judgment of the Court of Justice of the European Union of December 2017. The judges of the Court then ruled that drivers cannot spend a weekly regular rest in the cabin of a vehicle.
