The paper deals with mobile workers – drivers who are, due to the specificities of their work, subject to the provisions of a special law that regulates their working hours, obligatory breaks and the way they are obliged to keep appropriate records about these. The existing Act on Working Time, Obligatory Breaks for Mobile Workers and Recording Equipment in Road Transport, which was adopted in 2013 and amended in 2015, is harmonized with the relevant directives and regulations of the EU, that its regulatory foundation located in the so-called AETR agreement, which was adopted in 1970. The paper emphasizes and explains the legal rules that regulate working hours and obligatory rest periods for these workers and emphasizes the essential requirements governing weekly and daily working hours of these workers, their night work and mandatory breaks, daily and weekly rest they must respect. Working time and obligatory rest records, which drivers must keep, are shown through practical examples of keeping records using an analogue or digital tachograph. Familiarity with these abovementioned regulations and their implementation in practice are both very important for mobile workers, drivers and their employers because they promote their safety as well as the safety of all other participants in road traffic and there is an attempt to influence the reduction of the number of victims on the roads.
