According (EU) 1266/2009 a tachograph minute will only recorded as driving time at the DTCO® 2.0, when it is the longest activity inside this minute. You can find the complete regulation here:

"The 1 Minute Rule is a blessing for the branche."

Michael Effinger, CEO of Spedition Effinger, reports from pratice: "The 1 Minute Rule is a blessing for the branche." Because you can roll on the parking spot a few meters, without interrupt your break or you can unscrupulously evacuate the ramp after unloading, companies will gain valuable time. However his 30 trucks are mainly on the road for construction and car industry purposes and not for regional traffic in Stop-and-Go-Operation, have been coming at him tidy sum.

Clever calculators can identify those likely to profit in the balance sheet, and in special big fleets you can save with it purely mathematical some vehicle. Although Effinger won't go so far. "But the time gained tremendously relaxing effect on the overall operation."It again a little more game comes in the vehicle scheduling. "We do not get so close approach our limits, have rarely hold their breath and not push every now and then one eye."
