The European Commission approved the regulations, according to which all new cars sold in the European Union must be equipped with monitoring cameras for the driver’s condition and flight recorders – they are supposed to establish the causes of accidents.

In addition, the system of automatic braking, holding in the lane, as well as breathalyzers and speed limiters will become mandatory for installation on all passenger cars. Some of the listed assistants, for example, auto braking, go to the base on many models in all versions, since these systems are mandatory for obtaining the maximum five stars in crash tests of Euro NCAP.

New technical requirements will have to be approved by all EU states in September 2019. If this happens, the new rules will come into effect in 2022 for all new cars, with the exception of trucks and buses. The European Commission hopes that the measures taken will help save 20 thousand lives by 2038 and prevent 140 thousand serious injuries.
