The article focuses on the rules for professional drivers issued by the European Union on April 11, 2007 and their possible impact on the chemical industry. Under the new rules, the total driving time is reduced to 56 hours; an obligatory rest of at least 45 consecutive hours every two weeks; and a prohibition against working more than six days in a row. While the new rules could minimize accidents due to over-tiredness, these could jack up chemical transportation costs which will ultimately be shouldered by the consumers.
