Yes they are policed. Hospitals have been fined tens of thousands of 
dollars in NY (Cornell) for residents being out of compliance. The 
residents won't lie about their hours when asked. Often it is as easy as 
looking at the call schedule. There are always disgruntled employees who 
will talk. Face it, you will HAVE TO comply.
