EU legislation to avoid car manufacturers cheating on gas emissiona

The European Commission has tabled new legislation designed to drive up motor vehicle safety and environmental standards across Europe. A key aim is to have a more efficient system of market surveillance and one that is trusted by EU citizens so that EU citizens can drive cleaner and safer cars.

Ivan Stefanec the European Parliament‘s shadow rapporteur and the EPP Group spokesperson on market surveillance, is confident that it will improve standards and prevent any similar scandal along the lines of the VW scandal in the future.
