The Official Mexican Standard NOM-087 indicates that the drivers of the Federal Autotransport service must take a 30-minute break for every 5 and a half hours continuous driving, as well as keep a registration log to show it at checkpoints.
Violations of the Service Registration Status represent more than 70% of the total HOS compliance violations, a fine of $1,000 to $10,000 USD that can impact the profitability of the operation and the reputation of the business.
Didcom® Telematics helps you to provide safety to your operation with drivers rested and in optimal conditions behind the wheel, in adherence to the HOS regulations that limit the hours of continuous driving allowed and define the breaks that a driver must have between their work shifts.
