Car Safety Package

— filed under: , ,

New technologies are now available which can dramatically improve vehicle safety or reduce CO2 emissions. The new "Car Safety Package" proposal foresees mandatory fitting of the following safety features: Electronic Stability Control Systems on all vehicles; Advanced Emergency Braking Systems and Lane Departure Warning Systems on heavy-duty vehicles; foresees the mandatory fitting of Tyre Pressure Monitoring Systems on passenger cars and introduces requirements on tyres with regard to their rolling resistance; sets more stringent noise emission limit values for tyres and introduces new wet grip requirements to ensure that this important safety aspect is not overlooked in the pursuit of more energy-efficient, quieter tyres; significantly simplifies the existing regulatory environment by repealing 150 Directives on the type-approval of vehicles.
