Download in .pdf format Download in .docx format

Proposal to clarify provisions regarding the actuation of the parking brake warning device to cover the case of electric control transmission systems where there may be a transition between parked (applied) and un-parked (released) braking states. The aim is to reduce risks of user confusion by specifying that the warning device would be actuated only after the parking brake has achieved a stable applied state.
