"Mr President, the subject of tachographs is one that has constantly evolved over many years. Changes in technology have seen us move from analogue to digital, and now we have a report that really asks the question: how far can we take this? It is often said here in Parliament that because we have technical capability, we need to do something with it. I disagree. Just because we can do something does not mean that we must. There is a suggestion that we merge driving licences with tachograph records. I do not agree. The two are not the same. One is private, one is professional. Like the limiting of a company’s liability, there must be protection for the individual acting in a private capacity. As for the subject of ‘Big Brother’s eye in the sky’ and satellite tracking of vehicles, this makes me very uncomfortable. If equal enforcement across Europe is our main concern, then that should be the focus, not creating a new way of tracking people. Finally, I would like to tackle what I regard as the elephant in the room: namely, the question of money. How are we to pay for this? Is it necessary at this time? Do you want to force struggling businesses to pay for it? No, it is not necessary now. And we should not be adding costs to struggling businesses. In the current climate, they have enough to worry about."@en4
