In Europe, drivers and companies get seriously hauled over the coals if a tachograph shows that driver regulations regarding rest time has been abused., but the regulations are far tighter and there is far more government control, I'm not sure how it is in the States.Sure, drivers will often find a way to get around them and so will trucking companies
Four different chip cards specify who can access specific DTCO® digital data.
Driver cards save driver activities, events, faults and vehicle changes.
The company card authorises vehicle data to be downloaded from the mass memory.
The control card enables authorities to access data for legal purposes.
The workshop card switches on the calibration function of the DTCO® – and it can also be used as a driver card for testing and inspection purposes.
