GRB/61 | Report of the GRB on its 63rd session
WP.29-168-13 | World Blind Union statement on the proposed UN Regulation on Quiet Road Transport Vehicles While encouraged by the adoption of a uniform minimum sound alert standard, the WBU continues to believe that: 1) the proposed minimum sound standard is too low for safety; 2) the AVAS should remain on while the QRTV is active but stationary; and 3) the regulation should prohibit manufacturers from providing a means of pausing the alert sound.
