What is a tachograph and do you need one?

A tachograph is a special device that regulates the driver's work and rest phases. It looks like a radio tape recorder. But it is equipped with two slots for driver cards and a check machine. There are digital and analog types.

Does the car need a tachograph?
The presence of a working device in a car carrying more than 8 passengers or cargo weighing more than 3.5 tons is prescribed by law. Therefore, the driver card for the tachograph is in great demand. Failure to comply with this rule will be charged a fine of 3000-5000 rubles from the driver and 15000-25000 rubles from the organization. As you can see, it is much more economical to install the device in the car and follow the regulated directions.

Reviews of the tachograph are mostly positive. Its functionality brings comfort to the driver. In case of any malfunctions of the car, the driver can press the panic button, notifying the necessary services about the problem.
Installation of a tachograph allows you to control the route of movement, record the speed, stops and their duration. This contributes to the correct organization of control over the actions of the driver and ensures the safety of the cargo.

You can retrieve the required trip data from your device in two ways. The first one is to print it on the receipt tape. The second is by copying information to a flash drive.

The European experience of using this device shows that the number of accidents on the roads has decreased by almost a third. But, of course, the introduction of the tachograph into commercial structures caused a rise in the price of some services.
