German proposal amending its earlier draft supplement to UN R48 that would introduce provisions for flashing side marker lamps for M2, M3, N2, N3, O3 and O4 category vehicles in order to promote the safety of vulnerable road users by informing them about the intended turns of buses and heavy goods vehicles and their trailers. The change would exempt the proposed requirement from the transitional provisions of the 06 series of amendments.

12. The expert from Germany presented a revised proposal to require side marker lamps to flash together with direction indicators on heavy goods vehicles and buses (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2014/33, GRE-72-22) as well as additional transitional provisions (GRE-72-05 and GRE-72-06). Following an in-depth discussion, GRE adopted this proposal as contained in Annex VI to the report and requested the secretariat to submit it to WP.29 and AC.1 for consideration and vote at their March 2015 sessions as draft Supplement 5 to the 06 series of amendments to Regulation No. 48. GRE agreed not to include any specific transitional provisions, because the transitional provisions for the 06 series of amendments would also apply to this proposal.
