Amendment    3

Proposal for a regulation

Recital 2 a (new)

Text proposed by the Commission

Amendment

 

(2a)  Road safety in the Union requires a coordinated policy at international level in the framework of the UNECE agreements and especially in the Working Party 29 (WP.29) and an integrated approach at Union, national, regional and local level. It is therefore necessary to coordinate actions and measures taken by different authorities in key components of the road safety covering vehicles, driving behaviours and road signs and infrastructures.

Amendment    4

Proposal for a regulation

Recital 3

Text proposed by the Commission

Amendment

(3)  Over the past decades, developments in vehicle safety have contributed significantly to the overall reduction in the number of road fatalities and severe injuries. However, these reductions have recently stalled in the Union due to various factors, such as structural and behavioural factors, and without new initiatives on general road safety, the safety effects of the current approach will no longer be able to off-set the effects of increasing traffic volumes. Therefore, the safety performance of vehicles needs to be further improved as part of an integrated road safety approach and in order to protect vulnerable road users better.

(3)  Over the past decades, developments in vehicle safety have contributed significantly to the overall reduction in the number of road fatalities and severe injuries. However, 25 300 people died in 2017 on Union roads, a figure that has stagnated in the last four years. Moreover, 135 000 people are seriously injured in collisions every years. The Union shall do its utmost to reduce these figures drastically aiming at the Vision Zero goal of “no fatalities”. In addition to the safety measures to protect vehicle occupants, the implementation of specific measures to prevent fatalities and injuries of vulnerable road users, such as cyclists and pedestrians, is needed to protect users outside of the vehicle. Without new initiatives on general road safety, the safety effects of the current approach will no longer be able to off-set the effects of increasing traffic volumes. Therefore, the safety performance of vehicles needs to be further improved as part of an integrated road safety approach and in order to protect vulnerable road users better.

Amendment    5

Proposal for a regulation

Recital 3 a (new)

Text proposed by the Commission

Amendment

 

(3a)  The definition of vulnerable road users should include motorised road users such as segways, scooters, wheelchairs and e-bikes.

Amendment    6

Recital 4

Text proposed by the Commission

Amendment

(4)  Technical progress in the area of advanced vehicle safety systems offers new possibilities for reducing casualty numbers. In order to minimise the number of fatalities, some of the relevant new technologies need to be introduced.

(4)  Technical progress in the area of advanced vehicle safety systems offers new possibilities for reducing casualty numbers. In order to minimise the number of severe injuries and fatalities, a package of the relevant new technologies need to be introduced.

Amendment    7

Proposal for a regulation

Recital 5 a (new)

Text proposed by the Commission

Amendment

 

(5a)  To ensure technology neutrality as regards tyre pressure monitoring systems, the performance requirement should allow both direct and indirect tyre pressure monitoring systems.

Amendment    8

Proposal for a regulation

Recital 5 b (new)

Text proposed by the Commission

Amendment

 

(5b)  The regulatory measures proposed can be effective, in reducing fatalities, decreasing the number of road accidents and mitigating injuries and damage, only if they gain the acceptance of users. Therefore, vehicle manufacturers should do their utmost to ensure that the systems and features provided for in this Regulation are developed in such a way so as to support the driver, ensure the user acceptance and their likeliness of being used. To that end, the functioning of those systems and features and their limitations should also be explained in a clear and consumer-friendly manner in the motor vehicle’s user instructions.

Amendment    9

Proposal for a regulation

Recital 6

Text proposed by the Commission

Amendment

(6)  Intelligent speed assistance, lane-keeping systems, driver drowsiness and attention monitoring and distraction detection and reversing detection systems have a high potential to reduce casualty numbers considerably. In addition, those systems are based on technologies which will be used for the deployment of connected and automated vehicles too. Therefore, harmonised rules and test procedures for the type-approval of vehicles as regards those systems and for the type-approval of those systems as separate technical units should be established at Union level.

(6)  Advanced emergency braking systems, intelligent speed assistance, emergency lane-keeping systems, driver drowsiness and distraction warning, advanced driver distraction warning and reversing detection systems are safety systems that have a high potential to reduce casualty numbers considerably. In addition, some of those safety systems form the basis of technologies which will be used for the deployment of automated vehicles. Any such safety system should function without use of any kind of biometric information of drivers or passengers, including facial recognition. Therefore, harmonised rules and test procedures for the type-approval of vehicles as regards those systems and for the type-approval of those systems as separate technical units should be established at Union level. The technological progress of those systems should be taken into account in every evaluation of the existing legislation, in order to be future proof, strictly adhering to the principle of privacy and data protection, and to support the development towards Vision Zero driving. It is also necessary to ensure that those systems can be used safely, throughout the life cycle of the vehicle.

Amendment    10

Proposal for a regulation

Recital 6 a (new)

Text proposed by the Commission

Amendment

 

(6a)  It should be possible to switch off the intelligent speed assistance, for instance, when a driver experiences false warnings or inappropriate feedback as a result of inclement weather conditions, temporary conflicting road markings in construction zones and misleading, defective or missing road signs. Such switch-off feature should be under the control of the driver, last as long as necessary and have the option of being easily switched on by the driver. The system should be always active when switching the ignition on and the driver should always be made aware whether the system is on or off.

Amendment    11

Proposal for a regulation

Recital 6 b (new)

Text proposed by the Commission

Amendment

 

(6b)  It is widely recognised that the safety-belt is one of the most important and effective vehicle safety features. Safety-belt reminder systems therefore have the potential to further prevent fatalities or mitigate injuries by increasing the safety-belt wearing rates across the Union. For this reason, the Regulation (EC) No 661/2009 made the safety-belt reminder system already compulsory for the driver seat in all new passenger cars since 2014.This was achieved through the implementation of UN Regulation 16 that contained the relevant technical provisions. Thanks to the adaptation to technical progress of that UN Regulation, it will now also become obligatory to fit all front and rear seats of M1 and N1 vehicles, as well as all front seats of N2, N3, M2 and M3 vehicles with safety-belt reminder systems asf rom 1 September 2019 for new types and 1 September 2021 for all new motor vehicles.

Amendment    12

Proposal for a regulation

Recital 7

Text proposed by the Commission

Amendment

(7)  The introduction of event (accident) data recorders storing a range of crucial vehicle data over a short timeframe before, during and after a triggering event (for example, the deployment of an airbag) is a valuable step in obtaining more accurate, in-depth accident data. Motor-vehicles should therefore be required to be equipped with such recorders. It should also be a requirement that such recorders are capable for recording and storing data in such a way that the data can be used by Member States to conduct road safety analysis and assess the effectiveness of specific measures taken.

(7)  The introduction of accident data recorders storing a range of crucial anonymised vehicle data over a short timeframe shortly before, during and immediately after a road accident (for example, triggered by the deployment of an airbag) is a valuable step in obtaining more accurate, in-depth accident data. All motor vehicles should therefore be required to be equipped with such recorders. Those recorders should be capable of recording and storing data in such a way that those data can be used by Member States to conduct road safety analysis and assess the effectiveness of specific measures taken without the possibility of identifying the owner or the holder of a particular vehicle on the basis of the stored data.

Amendment    13

Proposal for a regulation

Recital 8

Text proposed by the Commission

Amendment

(8)  Any processing of personal data, such as information about the driver processed in event (accident) data recorders or information about the driver on drowsiness and attention monitoring or advanced distraction recognition, should be carried out in accordance with EU legislation on data protection, in particular the General Data Protection Regulation28 . In addition, the processing of personal data collected through the 112-based eCall in-vehicle system is subject to specific safeguards29 .

(8)  Any processing of personal data, such as information about the driver processed in accident data recorders or information about the driver's drowsiness and attention or advanced driver distraction, should be carried out in accordance with Union legislation on data protection, in particular the General Data Protection Regulation28. Accident data recorders should operate on a closed-loop system, in which the data stored is overwritten, and which does not allow the vehicle or driver to be identified. In addition, the driver drowsiness and attention warning and advanced driver distraction warning systems should not continuously record or retain any data other than what is necessary in relation to the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed within the closed-loop system. Furthermore, the processing of personal data collected through the 112-based eCall in-vehicle system is subject to specific safeguards29.

Amendment    14

Proposal for a regulation

Recital 8 a (new)

Text proposed by the Commission

Amendment

 

(8a)  Recognising that driving whilst using a mobile phone or other device significantly impairs driving ability, vehicle manufacturers should publish their tests to show compliance with the human-machine interface (HMI) Guidance Statement of Principles on in-vehicle information and infotainment systems.

Amendment    15

Proposal for a regulation

Recital 8 b (new)

Text proposed by the Commission

Amendment

 

(8b)  Advanced emergency braking or emergency lane-keeping systems might not be fully operational in some cases, in particular due to shortcomings in road infrastructure. In those cases, the systems should deactivate themselves and give information about the deactivation to the driver. If they do not deactivate automatically, it should be possible to switch them off manually. Such deactivation should be temporary and last for a period when the system is not fully operational only. Drivers may also need to override advanced emergency braking system or emergency lane keeping system, where the functioning of the system could lead to greater risk or harm. This ensures that the vehicles are at all times under the driver´s control. Nevertheless the systems could also recognise instances where the driver is incapacitated and therefore intervention by the system is needed in order to prevent the worsening of an accident.

Amendment    16

Proposal for a regulation

Recital 13

Text proposed by the Commission

Amendment

(13)  Following the adoption of Regulation (EC) No 79/2009 of the European Parliament and of the Council33, the technical requirements and test procedures for the approval of hydrogen-powered vehicles and hydrogen systems and components, have been further developed at United Nations level to take account of technical progress. UN Regulation No 13434 currently also applies in the Union in respect of type-approval of hydrogen systems in motor vehicles. In addition to those requirements, criteria for the quality of the materials used in compressed hydrogen vehicle systems also apply but are currently only established at Union level.

Amendment    17

Proposal for a regulation

Recital 15

Text proposed by the Commission

Amendment

(15)  Historically, Union rules have limited the overall length of truck combinations which resulted in the typical cab-over-engine designs as they maximise the cargo space. However, the high position of the driver led to an increased blind spot area and poorer direct visibility around the truck cab. This is a major factor for truck accidents involving vulnerable road users. The number of casualties could be reduced significantly by improving direct vision. Requirements should therefore be introduced to improve the direct vision.

This is a major factor for truck accidents involving vulnerable road users. The number of casualties could be reduced significantly by improving direct vision. Requirements should therefore be introduced to improve the direct vision so as to enhance the direct visibility of pedestrians, cyclists and other vulnerable road users from the driver’s position. When designing the specific requirement for direct vision, specificities of different types of vehicles should be taken into account.

Amendment    18

Proposal for a regulation

Recital 16

Text proposed by the Commission

Amendment

(16)  Given the emphasis of EU vehicle safety regulations to protect vulnerable road users, inter alia, by ensuring adequate visibility for drivers, public and private entities should refrain from requiring the affixing of any kind of label, vignette or sticker meant for whichever purpose to any part of the transparent surface of the vehicles’ glazing. Furthermore, national authorities should enforce that windscreens and side windows are indeed kept clear of labels, vignettes, stickers and any other vision impairing items as to not negate the effectiveness of the Union law on visibility for drivers.

(16)  Given the emphasis of Union vehicle safety regulations to protect vulnerable road users, inter alia, by ensuring adequate visibility for drivers, keeping windscreens clear of labels, vignettes, stickers, toll boxes and other items should be promoted. Vehicle manufacturers, in cooperation with national authorities and safety advocacy groups, should, for that purpose, consider specifying which areas of the transparent surface of the vehicles’ glazing are safe to be used for affixing of any kind of label, vignette, toll box or sticker, without diminishing the safety of vulnerable road users.

Amendment    19

Proposal for a regulation

Recital 17

Text proposed by the Commission

Amendment

(17)  Automated and connected vehicles may be able to make a huge contribution in reducing road fatalities since in the region of 90 per cent of road accidents are estimated to result from human error. As automated vehicles will gradually be taking over tasks of the driver, harmonised rules and technical requirements for automated vehicle systems should be adopted at Union level.

(17)  Automated vehicles may be able to make a huge contribution in reducing road fatalities since more than 90 per cent of road accidents are estimated to result from some level of human error. As automated vehicles will gradually be taking over tasks of the driver, harmonised rules and technical requirements for automated vehicle systems, including in regard to verifiable safety assurance for automated vehicles decision-making, should be adopted at Union level and promoted at international level in the framework of the UNECE WP.29.

Amendment    20

Proposal for a regulation

Recital 18 a (new)

Text proposed by the Commission

Amendment

 

(18a)  As the average age of a vehicle in the Union is over 10 years, retrofitting existing vehicles with advanced driver assistance systems can contribute substantially to reducing road fatalities in the Union. In this regard, the Union should continue to assess whether retrofitting the existing fleet, particularly buses and trucks, with advanced driver assistance systems is feasible and cost-effective.

Justification

Retrofitted safety features improve the safety level of existing vehicles in use and protect vulnerable road users. This amendment aligns to the Commission’s Communication and previous European Parliament reports in this area.

Amendment    21

Proposal for a regulation

Recital 18 b (new)

Text proposed by the Commission

Amendment

 

(18b)  Vehicle security is no longer limited to protection against vehicle theft, but needs to target protection of the whole vehicle architecture preventing loss or compromise of system and component integrity. This, to ensure that a vehicle, system, separate technical unit, components as well as parts and equipment compliance with safety and environmental approval requirements remain effective and have reduced risk of being compromised during the vehicle’s life, within reasonable but up-to-date protection measures. The connectivity and automation of vehicles increase the possibilities for unauthorised, remote access to in-vehicle data and illegal modification of software over-the-air. To take into account the upcoming risks resulting of that, UN Regulations on security, cyber security and over-the-air software updates should be applied mandatory as soon as possible after their entry into force. It should be ensured that vehicles, their systems, separate technical units, components, parts and equipment are equipped with up-to-date security technology when placed on the market and that this high level of security is maintained by regularly updating hardware and software until a vehicle’s end-of-life. However, those security measures should not compromise the obligations of the vehicle manufacturer to provide access to comprehensive diagnostic information and in-vehicle data relevant to repair and maintain a vehicle.

Justification

In line with the final report UNECE ITS/AD group, WP29 was recommended to establish a UN Regulation on cyber security. Cyber security is only one pillar of overall vehicle security. Security must be ensured from cradle to grave and addressed by design for security of a connected vehicle, making it technically very difficult and economically unattractive to tamper with it, be it physically or remotely over-the-air.

Amendment    22

Proposal for a regulation

Recital 19

Text proposed by the Commission

Amendment

(19)  The Union should continue to promote the development of technical requirements for tyre noise, rolling resistance and wet grip performance of tyres at the United Nations level. This is because UN Regulation No 117 now contains these detailed provisions. The process of adapting the requirements on tyres to take account of technical progress should continue at United Nations level, in particular to ensure that tyre performance is also assessed at the end of a tyre's life in its worn state and to promote the idea that tyres should meet the requirements throughout their life and not be replaced prematurely. Existing requirements in Regulation (EC) No 661/2009 relating to tyre performance should be replaced by equivalent UN Regulations.

This is because UN Regulation No 117 now contains these detailed provisions. The process of adapting the requirements on tyres to take account of technical progress should be rapidly and ambitiously continued at United Nations level, in particular to ensure that tyre performance is also assessed at the end of a tyre's life in its worn condition and to promote the idea that tyres should meet the requirements throughout their life and not be replaced prematurely. To ensure that rigorous standards are met, existing requirements in Regulation (EC) No 661/2009 relating to tyre performance should be monitored and evaluated, and should be replaced when tyre performance can be improved within the Union.

EXPLANATORY STATEMENT

This legislative initiative is part of the Third "Europe on the Move" mobility package and proposes a revision of the current framework (General Safety Regulation (EC) No 661/2009 and Pedestrian Safety Regulation (EC) No 78/2009) to adapt it to the changes in mobility resulting from societal trends (e.g. more cyclists and pedestrians, an aging society) and technological developments. It intends to set out the general technical requirements for type-approval of vehicles, systems, components and separate technical units in a list of safety areas. The proposal intends to be applied in parallel to the recent Regulation (EU) 2018/0858 on the approval and market surveillance of motor vehicles and their trailers, and of systems, components and separate technical units intended for such vehicles, which it supplements. As regards its scope, the subject matter of the GSR is maintained in this proposal with the addition of the requirements for protection of vehicle occupants and vulnerable road users, extending it to all categories of vehicles (including the presently exempted SUVs and vans). The integration of technical progress is at the basis of the  proposal, particularly in the areas of tyre pressure monitoring systems, the intelligent speed assistance; driver drowsiness and attention monitoring/distraction recognition systems; reversing detection; alcohol interlock installation facilitation; event (accident) data recorder; enlarged head impact protection zone for vulnerable road users and frontal protection systems; detection and warning system for vulnerable road users in close proximity of trucks and busses and improved the visibility of vulnerable road users from driver's seat.

In 2017 the number of fatalities on the EU roads reached 25 300 people. Additional 135 000 people were seriously injured. All of those cases and each one individually was a blow for the relatives, their friends, for the society and for the economy too. In rapporteur’s view these frightening figures need to be reduced significantly. The fatalities on EU roads have decreased by over 40% during years 2001-2010. Unfortunately, since 2013 fatality reduction rates have plateaued with the decrease as low as 3%. In consequence, reaching EU target for 2020, to halve the number of road deaths in the EU by 2020 from the 2010 baseline, will be extremely difficult to achieve in absence of further decisive action. In rapporteur’s view there’s an urgent need to reduce number of fatalities and casualties on EU roads. In her opinion specific focus should be put on protecting pedestrians, cyclists and other vulnerable road users who accounted for almost half of the road victims in 2017.

The amendments of the rapporteur go in this direction and intend to increase the effectiveness of the regulatory framework in decreasing the number of accidents, reducing fatalities, injuries and damage, through the integration of passive and active safety features into the components of vehicles. .The rapporteur supports the measures proposed by the Commission in articles 5 to 11. Some of them, however, need further work and clarification in order to make sure that they will be effective and will gain user’s acceptance. In addition, in the rapporteur’s opinion this long-awaited proposal should start applying sooner as proposed by the Commission.

Among many measures proposed by the rapporteur the following ones are to be mentioned:

1.  Clarification of the definition of vulnerable road users in order to cover all motorized users without protective bodywork.

2.  Introduction of an obligation to project all the features and systems with an aim to enhance users’ experience in order to improve the acceptance of those features and systems.

3.  Introduction of safeguards protecting privacy, users’ data protection and effectiveness in regard to accident data recorders and advanced distraction recognition systems.

4.  Introduction of specific requirements in regard to intelligent speed assistance aiming at increasing user acceptance and effectiveness of this system.

5.  Introduction of a requirement, in regard to several delegated acts, to be published at least 12 months before the application of each requirement.

6.  Acceleration of the application of all requirements by 12 months.

7.  Introduction of the obligations in regard to review and reporting of the requirements as regards general safety.

8.  Application of penalties from the framework type-approval regulation 2018/858 to this regulation.

9.  Deletion of 2 annexes in regard to frontal protection systems and hydrogen-powered vehicle and introduction of delegated acts on this matter in order to take account of technical progress more effectively.

10.  Introduction of several amendments ensuring technological neutrality.

In addition, the rapporteur introduced several amendments to Annex II as regards reversing safety, forward vision, tyre safety and environmental performance and heavy-duty direct vision. They all aim to better reflect the actual state of technical progress and possibilities of obligatory introduction of different features and systems in the future.

In the rapporteur’s opinion this regulation is an ambitious proposal which should result in a significant decrease of the number of fatalities and injuries on the roads in the European Union in the short and medium term. In addition to this, it should also pave the way for the development of fully automated-driving vehicles in the near future. Autonomous vehicles will rely on many of the systems and features proposed in this regulation and, to be more precise, they will also rely on the users’ acceptance of those features and systems.

OPINION of the Committee on Transport and Tourism (15.1.2019)

for the Committee on the Internal Market and Consumer Protection

on the proposal for a regulation of the European Parliament and of the Council on type-approval requirements for motor vehicles and their trailers, and systems, components and separate technical units intended for such vehicles, as regards their general safety and the protection of vehicle occupants and vulnerable road users, amending Regulation (EU) 2018/… and repealing Regulations (EC) No 78/2009, (EC) No 79/2009 and (EC) No 661/2009

(COM(2018)0286 – C8‑0194/2018 – 2018/0145(COD))

Rapporteur for opinion: Matthijs van Miltenburg

SHORT JUSTIFICATION

Background

Article 17 of the General Safety Regulation ((EC) No 661/2009) and Article 12 the Pedestrian Safety Regulation ((EC) No 78/2009) require that the Commission monitor technical developments in safety technologies and eventually mandate new safety features by updating EU legislation. In line with these provisions, the Commission proposal contains specific adjustments to technical progress with regard to vehicle safety features to be included in the type-approval Framework Regulation ((EU) 2018/858). The proposal also repeals for simplification purposes the secondary legislation as regards road and pedestrian safety ((EC) No 78/2009 and (EC) No 79/2009).

The Rapporteur’s position

Although road safety has improved significantly over the past decades, there has been a stagnation in the reduction of road fatalities during the last five years, with 25.300 road fatalities in 2017 according to the statistical EU accident data. Road fatalities are mainly due to human errors and can be prevented. The Rapporteur is firmly convinced that the EU should take concrete action in order to further reduce the number of road fatalities. The new vehicle safety features introduced by this proposal have a high potential to revert this trend of stagnation, as these features seek to better prevent human errors. Better vehicle construction and, for example, lower speeds have the capacity to reduce the impact of accidents.

Altogether, technological advances within the field of automated driving are constantly developing. According to the Commission, this market will experience an exponential growth with expected economic benefits exceeding EUR 620 billion by 2025 for the EU automotive industry and EUR 180 billion for the EU electronic sector. Therefore, the Rapporteur is of the opinion that the EU automotive industry should become future-proof by taking the most of the new business opportunities for start-ups, SMEs and the industry that the market brings and will continue to bring. The advanced safety features comprehended in the proposal could certainly pave the way to prepare the EU automotive industry for connected and automated driving. It could also help consumers to get used to the new features gradually, which will be decisive for consumer acceptance and trust in the new technology.

The Rapporteur believes that the proposal sets out a forward-oriented, yet ambitious framework aimed at enhancing the protection of road users and, more specifically, vulnerable road users. The Rapporteur takes into account the open dialogue and exchange of views that the Commission conducted with diverse stakeholders in order to present adequate and realistic measures, taking account of both consumers and the industry.

Based on this, the Rapporteur wishes to ensure in this opinion that:

A.  (car) safety is ensured in the light of minimum performance standards, which should apply to all motor vehicles, regardless of vehicle segment;

B.  any processing of (personal) data must be carried out in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation ((EU) 2016/679). In addition, the Rapporteur wishes to ensure more specific and more concrete safeguards;

C.  the proposed measures are proven effective and cost-effective, without leading to substantial higher prices for consumers;

D.  the maturity of proposed safety features is guaranteed and the implementation is carried out in a responsible manner, specifically with regards to features for which it is not possible to be switched off, e.g. the Intelligent Speed Assistance (ISA), advanced emergency braking system, among others;

E.  provisions on the development of technical requirements for tyres should be introduced in the proposal to complement these measures in order to improve vehicle safety in terms of better grip performance, and in order to contribute to less tyre noise and reduced CO2-emission;

F.  manufacturers should provide clear and consumer-friendly information in the owner’s manual to help drivers understand the driving assistance systems and their functionalities;

G.  Safety systems and warnings proposed to assist drivers are to be easily perceived by all drivers, including people with disabilities. Safety systems are to be adapted where necessary to ensure this;

H.  Member States shall take corrective measures for enforcement purposes in order to guarantee that all new motor vehicles are produced in accordance with this Regulation.

AMENDMENTS

The Committee on Transport and Tourism calls on the Committee on the Internal Market and Consumer Protection, as the committee responsible, to take into account the following amendments:

Amendment    1

Proposal for a regulation

Recital 3

Text proposed by the Commission

Amendment

(3)  Over the past decades, developments in vehicle safety have contributed significantly to the overall reduction in the number of road fatalities and severe injuries. However, these reductions have recently stalled in the Union due to various factors, such as structural and behavioural factors, and without new initiatives on general road safety, the safety effects of the current approach will no longer be able to off-set the effects of increasing traffic volumes. Therefore, the safety performance of vehicles needs to be further improved as part of an integrated road safety approach and in order to protect vulnerable road users better.

(3)  Over the past decades, developments in vehicle safety have contributed significantly to the overall reduction in the number of road fatalities and severe injuries. However, 25,300 people died in the year 2017 on EU roads, a figure that has hardly budged in four years. In addition, at least, 135,000 people are seriously injured in collisions every year on EU roads. Without new initiatives on general road safety, the safety effects of the current approach will no longer be able to off-set the effects of increasing traffic volumes. Therefore, the safety performance of vehicles needs to be further improved as part of an integrated road safety approach and in order to protect vulnerable and all other road users better.

Amendment    2

Recital 5 a (new)

Text proposed by the Commission

Amendment

 

(5 a)  The safety systems in this Regulation should all be proven to be effective and cost-effective, and should not lead to substantially higher prices for consumers.

Amendment    4

Proposal for a regulation

Recital 6

Text proposed by the Commission

Amendment

(6)  Intelligent speed assistance, lane-keeping systems, driver drowsiness and attention monitoring and distraction detection and reversing detection systems have a high potential to reduce casualty numbers considerably. In addition, those systems are based on technologies which will be used for the deployment of connected and automated vehicles too. Therefore, harmonised rules and test procedures for the type-approval of vehicles as regards those systems and for the type-approval of those systems as separate technical units should be established at Union level.

(6)  Advanced emergency braking systems, intelligent speed assistance, lane-keeping systems, turning assistance, driver drowsiness and attention monitoring and distraction detection and reversing detection systems have a high potential to reduce casualty numbers considerably. The driver drowsiness and attention monitoring and distraction recognition systems should work without any facial recognition. In addition, those systems are based on technologies which will be used for the deployment of connected and automated vehicles too. Therefore, harmonised rules and test procedures for the type-approval of vehicles as regards those systems and for the type-approval of those systems as separate technical units should be established at Union level. It should also be ensured that these systems can be inspected, and thus operated safely, throughout the life cycle of the vehicle.

Amendment    5

Proposal for a regulation

Recital 7

Text proposed by the Commission

Amendment

(7)  The introduction of event (accident) data recorders storing a range of crucial vehicle data over a short timeframe before, during and after a triggering event (for example, the deployment of an airbag) is a valuable step in obtaining more accurate, in-depth accident data. Motor-vehicles should therefore be required to be equipped with such recorders. It should also be a requirement that such recorders are capable for recording and storing data in such a way that the data can be used by Member States to conduct road safety analysis and assess the effectiveness of specific measures taken.

(9a)  The deployment of eCall systems in motorcycles, commercial vehicles and buses is essential to provide professional medical assistance to accident victims as soon as possible.

Amendment    9

Proposal for a regulation

Recital 15

Text proposed by the Commission

Amendment

(15)  Historically, Union rules have limited the overall length of truck combinations which resulted in the typical cab-over-engine designs as they maximise the cargo space. However, the high position of the driver led to an increased blind spot area and poorer direct visibility around the truck cab. This is a major factor for truck accidents involving vulnerable road users. The number of casualties could be reduced significantly by improving direct vision. Requirements should therefore be introduced to improve the direct vision.

Recital 17

Text proposed by the Commission

Amendment

(17)  Automated and connected vehicles may be able to make a huge contribution in reducing road fatalities since in the region of 90 per cent of road accidents are estimated to result from human error. As automated vehicles will gradually be taking over tasks of the driver, harmonised rules and technical requirements for automated vehicle systems should be adopted at Union level.

(17)  Automated and connected vehicles may be able to make a huge contribution in reducing road fatalities since in the region more than 90 per cent of road accidents are estimated to result from human error or interaction of human error with vehicle and/or infrastructure. As automated vehicles will gradually be taking over tasks of the driver, harmonised rules and technical requirements that are efficient and suitable for automated vehicle systems should be adopted at Union level.

Amendment    12

Proposal for a regulation

Recital 19

Text proposed by the Commission

Amendment

(19)  The Union should continue to promote the development of technical requirements for tyre noise, rolling resistance and wet grip performance of tyres at the United Nations level. This is because UN Regulation No 117 now contains these detailed provisions. The process of adapting the requirements on tyres to take account of technical progress should continue at United Nations level, in particular to ensure that tyre performance is also assessed at the end of a tyre's life in its worn state and to promote the idea that tyres should meet the requirements throughout their life and not be replaced prematurely. Existing requirements in Regulation (EC) No 661/2009 relating to tyre performance should be replaced by equivalent UN Regulations.

(19)  The Union should continue to promote the development of technical requirements for tyre noise, rolling resistance and wet grip performance of tyres at the United Nations level. This is because UN Regulation No 117 now contains these detailed provisions. The process of adapting the requirements on tyres to take account of technical progress should be rapidly and ambitiously continued at United Nations level, in particular to ensure that tyre performance is also assessed at the end of a tyre's life in its worn state and to promote the idea that tyres should meet the requirements throughout their life and not be replaced prematurely. To ensure that rigorous standards are met, existing requirements in Regulation (EC) No 661/2009 relating to tyre performance should be monitored and evaluated, and should be replaced when tyre performance can be improved within the European Union.
