TACHOGRAPH DIAGRAM IN THE SERVICE OF ACCIDENT EXPLANATION

FAHRTSCHREIBER-DIAGRAMM IM DIENSTE DER UNFALLAUFKLAERUNG

In accidents involving lorries an accurate evaluation of the tachograph diagram often provides information on the cause. A large tachograph manufacturer makes use annually of more than 3000 opinions put forward by an expert team of assessors. The methods of evaluation are described. A significant part of this is an evaluation with a special microscope having 6 to 80 times magnification which follows the general assessment of the diagram. With overwritten or damaged drawings the reflection procedure is used. The speed - path - time diagram is supplemented by a written expert opinion and a tenfold magnification of the section of the diagram in question. Two sample cases are described. (TRRL)
