PASSIVE VEHICLE SAFETY AND LEGISLATION. PRESENT DAY SAFETY LEGISLATION - DESIGN AND PERFORMANCE SPECIFICATIONS

PASSIVE FAHRZEUGSICHERHEIT UND GESETZGEBUNG. DIE HEUTIGE SICHERHEITSGESETZGEBUNG - KONSTRUKTIONS- UND LEISTUNGSVORSCHRIFTEN

THE AUTHOR DISCUSSES THE POSSIBILITIES AND LIMITS OF DESIGN AND PERFORMANCE SPECIFICATIONS IN LEGISLATION FOR PASSIVE AUTOMOBILE SAFETY. PRESENT SAFETY LEGISLATION GUARANTEES A MINIMUM LEVEL OF PROTECTION BUT PREVENTS A FURTHER INCREASE IN THE LIMITS FOR PROTECTION. DESPITE A LACK OF MOTIVATION BY THE LEGISLATORS FURTHER DEVELOPMENT HAS TAKEN PLACE AND NEW OCCUPANT PROTECTION MEASURES HAVE BEEN INTRODUCED. THE ARTICLE DISCUSSES IN PARTICULAR THE ECE REGULATION R33, R12, R14 AND R21, WHICH RELATE TO THE VEHICLE CELL, RESTRAINT SYSTEM, SEATS, STEERING AND PARTS OF THE INTERIOR.
