@Camioneroleones.- A new device to alter the driving times and rest should be recorded in the tachograph, has been located by agents of the gendarmes of the French in the control carried out to a truck in the motorway A-1 in the vicinity of the town of Dourges.
During the control carried out by the agents, apparently everything was normal, although a small cable poking out of one of the keys on the dashboard of the truck, called the attention of the agents. When you removed the lid to discover the connection to a USB device. Then the agents find a small USB key that the driver uses to alter the records of the tachograph.
When the driver inserts the key in the USB device to the tachograph stops recording the movements of the truck, recording the only break, without pointing out any failure of the tachograph. The device you can see in the following photos:
The truck driver was punished with a fine of 4,500 euros, in addition to be taken to a workshop to remove the device, a payment for which you would also have to cope for an amount of € 1,600. In addition he was seized by the device that was used to fraud give the tachograph.
