19. The expert from Poland proposed to introduce optional ‘side illuminating lamps’ into Regulations Nos. 48 and 119 (agenda item 7 (l)) (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2015/6, ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2015/19, GRE-73-12, GRE-73-13, GRE-73-27) with the aim to increase the visibility of pedestrians, animals, etc. for glared drivers. The expert from India suggested corrections to this proposal (GRE-73-19). GRE was of the view that this proposal would not bring additional benefits for road safety and was not in a position to support it.
24. The expert of GTB introduced ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2015/8 with a proposal to update the provisions relating to failure of light sources when an operating tell-tale is installed. GRE noted that this document was part of collective amendments to various Regulations (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2015/10, ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2015/11, ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2015/12, ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2015/14, ECE/TRANS/ WP.29/GRE/2015/18). Following comments from the experts of Germany and the Netherlands, GRE requested GTB to revise the proposal and submit a new document to the next session.
37. GRE noted that ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2015/18 would be considered at the next session in conjunction with a similar proposal for amendments to Regulation No. 7 (see para. 24 of this report).
38. GRE recalled that a proposal by the expert from Poland to introduce ‘side illuminating lamps’ into Regulation No. 119 (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2015/19, GRE-73-13, GRE-73-27) was considered in conjunction with agenda item 6 (b) (see para. 19 above).
