Banning combustion engines is not enough for ideology-driven Eurocrats: The EU is now discussing tightening driving license rules. The first draft law contains significant restrictions. Many drivers – novice drivers and senior citizens will be particularly affected – facing not only bans and restrictions, but also considerable costs. The EU is apparently working on ending private motorized transport.
The European Parliament’s Transport and Tourism Committee is currently working on a revision of the driving license guidelines. With its “Vision Zero”, the EU aims to reduce the number of accidents and is believed to reduce the number of road deaths to zero by 2050. Obviously the number of cars in the EU needs to be reduced, preferably to zero. Anyone who looks at the draft immediately realizes that it is not about the well-being of citizens. Instead, they are once again acting against their wishes.
Driving bans, restrictions, frequent expensive driving tests
The draft is a revision of the older Driving License Directive 2006/126/EC, which was adopted in December 2006. And the suggestions have it all. The committee’s chair and correspondent, French Green politician Karima Delli, suggests, among other things:
90 km/h speed limit for new drivers, Due to which it will become impossible to overtake any truck on the highway. Also, if you have a driving license then you will have to remain on probation after completing the probation period A new driving test must be taken.
possibility of one ban on driving at night This should be introduced for novice drivers. A ban on driving between midnight and six in the morning should be allowed. restrictions The draft states that it should be effective, proportionate, disarming and non-discriminatory.
Seniors will be particularly affected by the new rules – one could almost speak of age discrimination. someone should do the same Driving license validity is limited for people aged 60 years and above To be introduced: For senior citizens aged 60 years and above, validity will be limited to 7 years, 70 years to 5 years and 80 years to 2 years. after that there is one new driving test Because, the affected people will have to bear the cost themselves. But that’s not all, your ability to drive must also be examined through comprehensive medical and psychological examinations.
The fight against large vehicles: second driver’s license from the age of 21
Weight limits for driving licenses should also be implemented. A must have for all Class B (old Class 3) car driving licenses weight limit 1800 kg Apply (first 3500 kg), which will also mean a speed limit of 110 km/h. To drive larger vehicles, you must obtain your own category “B+” driving license, but this is only possible from the age of 21. The draft states that violations will result in effective and dissuasive sanctions.
The purpose of this regulation is to make it significantly more difficult or impossible to drive larger vehicles. Not only SUVs and mid-range and high-end cars will be affected, but electric cars may also weigh more than 1.8 tonnes due to heavy batteries. This means that they can be driven only from the age of 21 years.
Further changes are being called for, such as EU-wide standardization of fines.
Are senior citizens generally ineligible to drive?
The draft claims that the new rules will not affect existing driving licenses. This statement can be doubted. Ultimately, experience shows that the rules can soon be applied to all driving licenses. Restrictions for senior citizens would ignore decades of driving experience and put this age group under general suspicion of being unfit to drive.
This is clearly about harassing drivers and banning driving in the long term – with fuel prices skyrocketing, combustion engines being banned and restrictions on the validity of driving licenses in the future and costly health and driving risks. There will also be a danger of. Testing for senior citizens. Such harsh restrictions cannot be justified by traffic safety. One can only shake one’s head at the EU’s lobby-driven climate madness and its associated target of emitting no more CO2 by 2050. The truth is that the EU has no right to exist in this aggressive form.
new green ban orgy
It remains to be seen whether the Greens can actually implement this sanctions orgy. The proposals have been hotly debated in the EU Parliament and have so far been rejected by the majority. However, if the changes are passed, they will be binding on member states and must be implemented.
Having your own car means not only mobility, but also freedom. The Greens’ ideology-driven demands aim to restrict people’s lifestyle on a large scale. The reactions of citizens in the EU to the planned harassment and sanctions may be interesting… The car was and is the favorite child not only of the Germans.
