HGV – Digital Tachographs
As with everything in life, technology is omnipresent and we all, young and old, are having to get to grips with it! This challenge extends to the operation of new vehicles fitted with digital tachograph units.
Even operators who still run a fully analogue fleet must deal with drivers in possession of digital driver cards, and sooner or later they will have to manage a contract using a “digital” vehicle (perhaps at short notice when a vehicle must be hired in to cover for another vehicle which has to be taken off the road unexpectedly). For the uninitiated, the world of digitals is a potential minefield. Getting the right legal advice, before the digital vehicle is put into service, is essential.
The good news is that much of the advice that HGV operators require and many of the systems that need to be implemented are quick to explain and relatively straightforward to put in place – provided you receive the right legal advice at the outset.
