Developing Braking Standards for Heavy Vehicles to Brake Effectively and Safety on Steep Declines
Austroads has released a report that proposes a new rule for inclusion in the Performance Based Standards (PBS) scheme, adding a requirement for applicant vehicles to meet a minimum level of auxiliary braking performance. The purpose of the new rule is to ensure that PBS vehicles can maintain a safe speed on long, steep descents, without reliance on service brakes. The report is available for no fee after logging onto the site.
