The government wants to increase the requirements for EU trailers

The government proposes a tightening of the regulations.

Short tractors with semi-trailer, so-called EU trailers, get stuck more often along our winter roads than other trucks and are involved in more accidents.

– Trucks registered abroad are involved in more minor accidents if you look at what the municipalities’ rescue services have been alerted to, says Omar Bagdadi at the Swedish Transport Agency to SVT.

The government is now proposing stricter rules on the pressure on the driving shaft and a requirement of at least 5 millimeter tread depth.

Swedish skiers have already criticized the proposal and believe that 5 mm tread depth is a bit during the winter.

– We are limited in what we can do because we can not ban or have special requirements in Sweden that do not apply in the rest of the EU, Omar Bagdadi answers at the Swedish Transport Agency.
