The Italian Constitutional Court declares illegitimate a national rule on
the car rental service with driver due to lack of proportionality with the national
and European principles of the market and competition.
The Constitutional Court ruling on the car rental service with driver
represents an important analytical perspective for confirmation of particular
legislative choices for administrative regulation, where competition is regulated
according to social utility.
The sentence of the constitutional court is an input for the future legislator
to intervene on new market phenomena that risk compromising the
correct functionality of this transport segment with a strong social impact.
