Get Off The Roads!

Small Dead Animals has a post today discussing an EU directive that limits the number of hours that truck drivers can spend on the road. I'm actually familiar with this law - when I was touring England with some friends last summer we took a guided tour to Stonehenge and Bath. The traffic in Bath that particular day was murder because of construction that was being undertaken on one of the main roads. As a result, we spent an hour or so inching along until we were warned that the bus had to be taken off the road or else our driver wouldn't be permitted to take us back to London

So we got out and walked to the Roman Baths, which wasn't exactly what I was expecting on a guided bus tour. But at least we got back to London.
