BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Vans and light trucks should be fitted with mandatory speed limiters in the European Union to prevent them exceeding 120 km per hour and improve their fuel efficiency, according to an EU report.

The recommendation comes in a paper setting out the European Parliament's preliminary stance on cutting carbon emissions from vans. Parliament and the EU's 27 member countries will hammer out a final deal in coming weeks.

"One ... way to tackle the problem would be to have mandatory speed limiters for light commercial vehicles," says the document, seen by Reuters.
