Mike Penning, Minister for Road Safety, has today announced in a Written Ministerial Announcement that the UK will not opt in to the new EU Directive on Cross-Border Enforcement. This is a disappointing decision. Opting in to the Directive could have given UK citizens greater protection both on roads in the UK and elsewhere in Europe when on holiday. On a more positive note, however, the option to join at a later date is left open if the costs are not too high.
