Road Safety is Now Getting Smart

New smart tachographs are now going to aid people in compliance with the rules regarding driver hours. Of course, any claims of financial benefits really are misguided. This is especially the case when you look at what the FTA have to say. They represent the logistics sector and they are refuting the claims that have been made by the EU commission. The new Smart Tachograph is going to aid compliance with the driving hours rule and it is also going to try and refuse the claims of the industry sector as well. This is going to make any new devices mandatory and it will also save the logistics business over 500 EUR in efficiencies.

James Firth is the head of the sector and he believes that smart tachographs are going to aid the enforcement for driving hours rules. The enforcement agencies all across Europe are now facing a battle to try and embrace the new generation of tachographs. They help with enforcement but some believe that they are not going to save the industry a ton of money.

Mr Firth has continued to say that those who work in driver jobs, or those who are searching for driving jobs Ireland won't be affected by this at all. This even applies to those who work in a driving agency Ireland too. That being said, satellite data will help authorities to try and catch those who are working illegally in the industry. This will help them to crack down and it will also help them to provide a more supportive working environment. Of course, more needs to be done to make sure that this is the case but as of right now, things look to be moving in the right direction. Smart technology is paving the way forward.
