Download in .pdf format

India supports the purpose of the amendments to GTR No. 3 (GRRF/2014/4) and UN R78 (GRRF/2014/5) to provide same safety in the case of a failure in CBS as that of the conventional system of the two independent brakes for two wheelers. However, India believes the application of the amendments to three-wheelers requires additional consideration. Therefore, in order to proceed with amendments concerning CBS for two-wheelers, India proposes changes to the proposed text in order to allow further consideration of three-wheelers.
