CUTAWAY: VARIOUS OF THE VOTE IN THE PLENARY ON THE DIMENSIONS AND WEIGHTS OF ROAD VEHICLES CIRCULATING WITHIN THE COMMUNITY 2. JORG LEICHTFRIED (S&D MEP, AT) SAYING (ENGLISH): “I think the first thing is that in the future, it will be possible to have more eco-friendly trucks. It will also be possible to have more weight in your vehicle if your engine uses different types of fuels, more environmental friendly fuels for example, and that I think is a very big advantage.” 3. CUTAWAY: JORG LEICHTFRIED TALKING WITH HER ASSISTANT 4. JORG LEICHTFRIED (S&D MEP, AT) SAYING (ENGLISH): “The trucks will also be safer because of the changes in their design, and especially safer for other people.
