Daily Rest Assurance from Tachodisc
25th July 2012
Tachodisc knows that one of the biggest misinterpretations of Drivers’ Hours Law is still Daily Rest, which when taken incorrectly is recorded as an infringement and could lead to possible fines.
To resolve this on-going compliance issue so that drivers can easily understand rest and working periods, and remain compliant, Tachodisc has created RestAssured™.
RestAssured™ is a circular instrument that uses the 24 hour clock and a visual traffic light system to show when rest periods are valid. The daily rest period is calculated by marking the start and end of duty, whereby the remainder of the 24 hour period will be the driver’s daily rest period.
Karen Crispe, Tachodisc’s Managing Director explains how RestAssured™ works: “Using the outer ‘start dial’ drivers simply align the start arrow at the time duty starts, and then use the second ‘end dial’ to align the end arrow where duty ends; the colour coded ‘daily rest taken’ box will then advise whether the rest period is regular, reduced or an illegal period of rest.”
“Should a driver wish to start earlier the next day, a third centre dial will then show if a legitimate daily rest would be taken.”
“RestAssured™ is a very simple but clever concept, and one that can really help drivers comprehend daily rest in just a matter of seconds,” added Karen.
Priced at just £9.95, RestAssured™ is now available direct from www.tachodisc.co.uk, or for further information call 01925 283328 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
