According to InterRegs, the European Parliament on March 10 adopted a draft regulation on the general safety of motor vehicles that mandates the fitment of electronic stability control systems, tire pressure monitoring systems, gearshift indicators, advanced emergency braking systems, and lane departure warning systems to various categories of vehicles. It also introduces rolling resistance limits, wet grip performance requirements, and lower noise limits for tires. Compliance will be phased in, with introduction dates ranging from Nov. 1, 2011, to Nov. 1, 2020. The draft regulation now goes to the European Council for its consideration.
