Recommended Posts

Some good news after all.

India too is getting serious about safety afterall like the West.

New directions make it mandatory for all commercial vehicles to have Anti Lock Braking systems installed.

Mandating ABS in CVs is really a good move.

But prior to this focus should be made on improving the standards of their build pattern first, which includes the better integration of their Body frame(including loading area) with the ladder chassis. Factory based construction methods should be used than traditional methods which includes the use of wooden planks as filling materials.

So, if Safety is the priority then why not to start with basics first.

That's a good news. Hope it will come as a mandatory feature in passenger vehicles also.

Most countries in the west have this feature a default or mandatory for all vehicles.

Hope for the best

Nearly half of the fatal accidents are caused due to drivers losing control over their commercial vehicles, ABS should sort that out, it would atleast cut short the impact of crash to say the least.

Hi..

This safety feature has evolved considerably in four-wheelers in the past decade. Modern Anti-Lock-Braking system not only prevents wheel locking but also controls the front-to-rear brake electronically. ABS generally improves vehicle stoppage distance on dry and slippery surfaces, and at the same time, it can significantly improve braking distance on loose surfaces like snow-covered areas or gravel, along with improved vehicle control.
