Every Minute Counts: VDO Rewards Buyers of VDO Tachograph Accessories with Stop Watch

The 2012 “3+1” promotion for tachograph analogue charts and printer paper takes into account the “1 minute rule” for Digital Tachographs.

Birmingham, United Kingdom, 27th January 2012. VDO is running its familiar 3+1 promotion on the sale of genuine VDO tachograph accessories this year.  Customers who purchase three boxes of tachograph charts or three boxes of printer paper will receive a free of charge gift.  The idea behind the stopwatch is it reflects the recent change to the transport industry with the introduction of the “One Minute Rule Legislation”.

Under the slogan “Every Minute Counts” this rule states that the longest activity within any given minute determines whether the minute is classed as working time or rest time.   This allows drivers to save valuable drive time behind the wheel, particularly in traffic jams or when waiting at customs when the vehicle is often only moved for a few seconds and is then stationery for long periods of time.

The promotional stopwatches are only available while stocks last.  Please visit www.vdoshop.co.uk to take advantage of this special offer or visit www.dtco.co.uk for more tachograph related information.
