    Director of Public Prosecutions v Guy [1998] RTR 82 HC (0 other reports)

In Director of Public Prosecutions v Guy , the High Court rules that there should be no extension of the permitted driving hours for a tachograph-fitted vehicle. The law aims to protect public safety, and driving a tachograph vehicle, even off-duty, will bring a driver within the law, so that record sheets must be kept and restrictions on working hours conformed to.
