‘Europe on the Move’ is a wide-ranging set of initiatives that, according to the Commission, will make traffic safer; encourage fairer road charging; reduce CO2 emissions, air pollution and congestion; cut red-tape for businesses; fight illicit employment and ensure proper conditions and rest times for workers.
