A Practical Stopping-Ability Regulation 560022

A WORKABLE, effective regulatory measure to assure minimum brake-performance requirements requires:
  1. 1.
    Commercially available instruments which facilitate rapid testing.
  2. 2.
    Statement of the requirement in units which allow most effective evaluation of braking performance.
  3. 3.
    Compliance with the requirement must be possible in both road and inspection-station tests.
The conclusions led to the final recommendation which was adopted for the Uniform Vehicle Code of 1954. A recommended enforcement program and testing requirements for the several vehicle classes are set forth.
