FUNCTIONAL REQUIREMENTS FOR ANTI-GLARE SYSTEMS

FUNKTIONELLE ERFORDERNISSE FUER SYSTEME DER BLENDUNGSBEGRENZUNG

ON THE BASIS OF FUNCTIONAL REQUIREMENTS REGARDING GLARE, A SO-CALLED "IMPROVED CITY LIGHT" IS SOUGHT FOR MOTOR VEHICLES. THIS WOULD BE DEFINED BY A LIGHT INTENSITY OF NOT LESS THAN APPROXIMATELY 20 CD AND NOT MORE THAN APPROXIMATELY 100 CD. LIGHT DISTRIBUTION SHOULD ALSO BE DEFINED. THE INTRODUCTION OF THE "IMPROVED CITY LIGHTING" COULD ELIMINATE MANY DEFECTS, WHICH EXIST AT PRESENT IN NIGHT-TIME TRAFFIC IN BUILT UP AREAS, ARISING FROM THE PROHIBITION OF GLARE. IT IS HOPED, THAT THE INTRODUCTION OF "IMPROVED CITY LIGHTING" WILL CONTRIBUTE TO TRAFFIC SAFETY. THE "IMPROVED CITY LIGHTING" SYSTEM MUST BE INTRODUCED SIMULTANEOUSLY WITH AN IMPROVEMENT IN STREET LIGHTING, WHICH AFFECTS TRAFFIC AND IS PRESENTLY VERY EFFECTIVE. THIS IS COMPATIBLE WITH EFFICIENT FUTURE SYSTEMS FOR THE IMPROVEMENT OF NIGHT TIME TRAFFIC SITUATIONS. DURING THE TRANSITION PERIOD, NECESSARY FOR THE INTRODUCTION OF "IMPROVED CITY LIGHTING", THE DRIVER SHOULD HAVE PREFERENCE BETWEEN A CHOICE OF "CITY LIGHTING" AND DIPPED LIGHTING. IF THAT IS NOT POSSIBLE LEGALLY, IT IS RECOMMENDED TO RETAIN THE PRESENT SYSTEM DURING THE TRANSITION PERIOD.
