The situation is more oppressive as customs demand the requested documents to have them delivered in German. This concerned: registration documentation, European license, tax numbers and other tax information, vehicle registration, contract of employment, planning concerning the route in Germany, parking, toll payment, food and fuel. Meanwhile word has it that the European Commission is against such actions. There is said to be letter in preparation, in which Germany is ordered to stop.
