The EU drops several silly choir card rules

In Brussels, the EU Parliament set out to ban new drivers from honking at night. That proposal, along with several others, has been thrown off the negotiating table.

The EU has not changed the union's common choir card rules since 2006. But several members of parliament now want to change that.

Some of the more head-scratching proposals have fortunately been taken off the table. Among other things, it was suggested that new drivers may not drive a car between 00.00 and 06.00 on all days of the week.

We here at Boosted could talk about that a few months ago.

But now Auto Motor und Sport writes that the EU has come to the conclusion that several of the more controversial proposals must be dropped from the negotiating table.

Including the ban, which would otherwise affect brand new drivers. The same applies to a proposal that would limit the speed of passenger cars depending on the driver's license category and the proposal for a special driver's license for SUVs.

Remarkably, a proposal to abolish the current companion arrangement for 17-year-olds who came to Denmark in 2017 has also been taken out of the negotiations.

However, EU politicians agreed to go ahead with a proposal which means that new drivers throughout the EU have a driving license under special probationary conditions for two years.

At home, this kind of thing already exists. And they are actually quite strict. For three years after taking the choir card for the first time, for example, only two more clips are needed to lose the choir card.

The vote that has now taken place does not necessarily mean that the new rules will come into being. EU politicians will only decide on this after the elections in June.
