EU Drivers Hours & Tachographs Allegations
To be able to properly assist in this subject area, a deep understanding of EU Drivers’ Hours and Tachograph Regulations, Working Time Directive, and GB Domestic Regulations is vital for determining whether allegations of breaches have been proven.
We have worked on some of the largest cases in the UK in matters ranging from Corporate Manslaughter, to Conspiracy to aiding and abetting.
For the past thirty seven years, Gordon Humphreys has led our analysis team, establishing facts on many cases through his reports. Our unrivalled expertise in uncovering details on allegations ranging from simple hour violations to more serious falsifications and conspiracies has been invaluable to our clients. No matter if you are a Solicitor, Barrister, Operator or Driver, we can provide you with thorough analysis and sound advice on the allegations you face.
At Foster Transport Compliance, we understand the importance of addressing and resolving allegations quickly and effectively. We strive to offer our clients the most comprehensive analysis of their cases, coupled with the most reliable advice, ensuring that they have the best possible chance of success. Whether you are seeking help with hour violations or Tachograph allegations, our analysis team, under the guidance of Gordon Humphreys, is here to support you every step of the way.
Depending on the type of case you have, it may involve single or multiple allegations, a summons to court (for matters of permitting, using, causing or conspiring), a fixed penalty notice at the roadside or a public inquiry. There can be allegations against an operator, a driver, or the nominated transport manager. We have seen them all, and, in some cases, these allegations, when reviewed in detail, are inaccurate; as such, the case, any case needs facts, as well as a definitive and balanced account of the evidence.
A Public Inquiry or Driver Conduct hearing may be conducted in the event of a proven offence, so the facts that can be proven must be established as soon as possible; many outside factors need to be taken into account; analysis is not simply assessing the recordings on the driver’s digital card, Vehicle Unit, or analogue recording.
We at Foster Transport Compliance excel in reviewing all the available evidence and offering independent expert analysis and advice. When you engage the services of Foster Transport Compliance, you will have access to some of the most respected industry experts in the UK and can rest assured we will carefully review your case before providing reliable analysis, reports, and providing evidence in court.

Ensure Continuous and Effective Management of Compliance
Many operators are not thoroughly audited and only a few undertake internal audits. Even fewer have a “tick-box” approach to auditing. This is problematic because as we have seen, many clients come to us after a major compliance issue has arisen, at which point the underlying problem has been detected by the enforcement body.
