Without driving licence to drive a Bus

his shift has ended After Benjamin Morel (Name changed) as a line driver in a city in the Romandie, he sits down on a Wednesday afternoon in the summer of 2018 in a sports car. The 25-Year-old and his colleague have borrowed it; the spray tour through the West of the Swiss Hinterland. Morel is driving on a country road, "try the car", he says. Much faster than the allowed 80 km/h he is on the way, flashed and has to give up his badge.

For other four months, ticket withdrawal, Anger, and more time on the train. Morel fears, however, the notice of termination. He switches on the Union and speaks with his boss. This could get him fired, but he finds that Morel does a good Job. His offer: Morel should relate to one month's vacation and for the rest of the time Work in the operation, assume, for he needs no ticket. "I had a huge luck," says Morel.

Only in the case of slight offences

Not the employer of the delinquent. "A breach with your own car, brings Bus drivers and truck drivers are often in desperate Need," says SP-national councillor Edith Graf-Litscher. In June, the national Council of their Motion has agreed to significantly. This calls for that judge to get more room and the driver's license private and professional life of different length can escape.

"I want to protect no speeders."Edith Graf-Litscher, SP-national councillor

Today the Council of States said Yes – oppositionslos. "I want to protect no speeders," says Graf-Litscher, who is also Secretary of the trade Union of transport personnel. With the new law, the Federal Council is preparing now, should only be in the case of slight offences, a differentiated withdrawal of the driving licence possible. These are violations for which a low risk for the security, and not more than 0.8 per Mille of alcohol in the game.


the judge can also come in the case of serious violations of the professional drivers in the opposite, has rejected the Council of States, in contrast to the large chamber, almost with 22 to 20 votes. Transport operators Ulrich Giezendanner (SVP) had asked for this. The Council of States followed the recommendations of the traffic Commission. It was that Offense on the Road are usually taken consciously and that chauffeurs have a special role model function. Only in the case of mild violations, judges should be given more flexibility.

"In Switzerland is revoked, no driver's license because someone is driving a few miles to fast."Simonetta Sommaruga, Federal councillor

The Federal Council in the national Council against both bills. Yesterday, transport Minister Simonetta Sommaruga said, however, that she could live with the differentiated Driving licence for light offences. You, however, made it clear once again: "In Switzerland, no leader is deprived of the badge, because someone is driving a few miles to fast." There are no trifles to be. In addition, Sommaruga warned of the difficult facilities of the Request. To define who is a professional driver, was almost impossible. Also service staff and the chimney sweeper were to rely in their work on a vehicle.

Morels exceeding the speed limit is a serious offense. He could also drive with the new law, only a Bus again, if he gets the driving licence for his car back. His card he has now, but he needs to watch out for. For five years, stricter rules apply to him. Even a small offence, his identity is gone. "I regret what I've done," says Morel. In a sports car, he will not rise.
