Transported by Ferry or Train.
By way of derogation from Article 8, where a driver accompanies a vehicle which is transported by ferry or train and takes a regular daily rest period, that period may be interrupted not more than twice by other activities not exceeding one hour in total. During that regular daily rest period, the driver shall have access to a bunk or couchette.
Do you remember what “regular daily rest” means? (Lesson 4)
11 hours or 3 + 9 hours within your 24 hours period. You can use only these breaks to travel on ferry or train!!! How is it look like?
And one more thing!!!
If your crossing is longer than 9 or 11 or 24 hours, and you have access to a bunk, you can use this time as a daily or reduced weekly rest period. If it takes more than 45 hours you have your weekly rest period done, but I’ve never seen a crossing like that. This fact laid down by European Council in Guidance 6. Click to read…
Thanks for reading and have a safe crossing…
