Research for TRAN Committee – Road enforcement databases: economic feasibility and costs

This in-depth analysis investigates the economic feasibility and cost of creating national road enforcement databases following the introduction of new smart tachographs (so-called “Generation 2” digital tachographs) into the EU road haulage market. Two scenarios are considered: the first includes building new databases capable of handling new smart tachograph data, and the second mainly relies on upgrading existing databases for this new usage (such as Tachonet, the European Register of Road Transport Undertakings (ERRU), or the Vehicle Information Platform (VIP) based on EUCARIS). Two options are also analysed: the first includes retrofitting the whole fleet of Heavy Goods Vehicles (HGVs) and buses from year 1, and the second is based on a more gradual introduction of new smart tachographs, only for new vehicles.
