Tachograph and legislation
A tachograph is a control device which is installed on board certain vehicles, to display and record automatically or semi-automatically, data related to vehicle; such as travelled kilometres and speed, as well as the activity and rest times of drivers.
Penalties related to improper use, manipulation, falsification or lack of both the tachographs and any other element required by law for the correct operation and administration of the tachographs may range from 200€ to 6000€. Because of this, it’s important to know the law in order to avoid this type of penalties and make correct use of all tachograph related elements. It’s important to take into account the Commission’s report on the analysis of penalties for serious infringements of the social rules in road transportation, as laid down in the legislation of the Member States.
