ABSTRACT
The author offers observation on digital tachograph or digitachs and the new European Union (EU) Drivers' Hours law. He reveals the flaws with digitachs. He claims that the complaints concerning the law range from a perceived conflict on rest periods between the EU Drivers' Hours regs and the Working Time Directive and doubts over what exactly is, and is not, in-scope when it comes to off-road driving.
