Skip to comments.EU introduces new road safety rules
Posted on 11/01/2012 2:39:08 PM PDT by Olog-hai
European roads should be safer from Thursday when a whole slew of new safety rules come into force, part of efforts to cut auto accident deaths by 50 percent by 2020.
Mandatory requirements include safety belt reminders, easier child seat fixing points, reinforced rear passenger seats to protect against shifting luggage in the boot and tire pressure sensors, the European Commission said Wednesday.

What fool would think that “safety regulations” have anything to do with safety?
Tire pressure sensors? That one is obviously Obama’s.
Expensive little item on a moving vehicle :).
They are already standard on some cars.
Will there be a speed limit on the Autoban?
The roads will be safer in part because fewer people will be able to afford a car.
Leftists have to control. They do so today primarily under the guise of environmentalism, and safety. Their BS is aimed at those most likely unconcerned with such sense or need to control, thus don’t recognize what the Left is actually doing.
Automobiles are a source of freedom to come, and go at will.
To control the man, to control the woman the Left has to control the attributes of their freedom.
They are making it more, and more difficult for free people to afford the attributes of their freedom.
Wouldn’t surprise me.
Many years ago I used to be a member of a little motor society called the Autobahnstormer’s Club. Oh, for the good old days.
FGS, do the idiots that write this stuff actually believe it works like that?
Wave a legislative wand and BOOM: "safe!"
The regs for NEW cars change on that day. The channel will take years for these obnoxious annoyances to show up on the road, much less actually make a difference.
Here’s a little story about leftists and control:
Years ago, one of my coworkers - a woman - was a leading light in the local socialist party and well connected in the party national leadership. Still active, far as I know.
She was also an anti-gunner.
So one day, I brought her along to a shoot. She got to try a 22 and bump down some tin cans, and seemed to have a lot of fun. I think she tried a few blasts with my 9 too.
On the way back, I asked her if she had any new insight on the gun question. Turns out she had.
Sge was now even MORE adamant that guss had to be banned. The POWER!. If she had a gun, she could MAKE people do her bdding. Surely, I had felt the POWER??
She raved on and on, and it mostly had to do with force, power, owerwhelm, kill, force, submission, kill, and more force.
Trying to legislate driver safety...you cannot increase commonse sense or decrease carelessness, by just passing a law.
Yup, One of the strongest of the Liberal senses next to sexual arousal, and bowel evacuation is projection.
She told you about her Liberal lust for power. She insists there be no guns, or she would use them to get her way. Knowing Liberals I don’t believe she was really joking.
There isn’t any way to work with those people. The only way I’ve determined there be successful coexistance is with them on another planet a number of light years from Earth.
Accidents will be forbidden by law. Problem solved!
I’m just too cheap to drive over 80.
I have them in my truck, they worked too, got a warning pressure was low, took it in and had a nail in the tire.
They do actually believe that it works exactly like that.
