Just how damaging Brexit is set to be for road users – particularly truckers involved in the cross-Channel trade – is outlined in this report from The Guardian. As with almost everything Brexit-related, it’s potentially a nightmare, with a strong possibility that UK driving licences no longer recognised by the EU if an agreement is not struck. “The biggest long-term challenge for the UK freight industry is the tiny number of travel permits potentially available for British truck drivers if there is no other solution found through an EU trade deal. Under existing international treaties, there are between 103 and 1,224 permits a year available to deal with more than 300,000 journeys by 75,000 British trucks.”
