'No solution': Drivers warned of 'significant queues' at EU border without new driving law

This has been criticised by haulage drivers, who branded it “absolute carnage”, with further fears that traffic could get worse at the beginning of 2022.

Because the new system will require biometric checks, it would mean every car and lorry passenger having to exit their vehicle, resulting in longer checks and potentially lengthy queues.

As it stands, tourists who drive through ports to the continent can simply have their passports assessed and stamped by border guards through their vehicle window, keeping traffic flowing smoothly.

There is currently no technology which would allow border officers to scan the face, passport and biometric details of every passenger while allowing them to remain in the vehicle.
