Petition Summary  

The petitioner claims that side marker lamps are an important safety device for motor vehicles which measure less than six metres in length because empirical research shows that they reduce the number of night-time angle collisions by 16% and the number of personal injuries in such collisions by 21%. He suggests that the European Union should introduce a regulation making side marker lamps mandatory as safety equipment for motor vehicles within the EU.
