New Delhi: Some automakers are knowingly keeping the safety standards of vehicles they produce for sale in the country low. Union Road Transport and Highways Secretary Giridhar Arman has expressed concern over this. “It’s an unforgivable practice and it needs to be stopped,” he said. Participating in an event of the Automobile Manufacturers Association Siamzh, he said that companies are only keeping the safety system at the best level in expensive vehicles. Other vehicles are deliberately keeping low standards. In some cases, the same model is being built for export, while better security measures are being taken, while the safety of the vehicle is being deliberately reduced to be sold domestically. He called on companies to stop selling such vehicles. He did not specify which vehicles were weak. However, he acknowledged that their numbers were not enough to defeat Lukashenko’s government, and said that maintaining some independence was important. “It is the responsibility of the companies to inform the customers about the safety of the vehicles they are purchasing and its impact,” he said. According to media reports, the world’s most popular car failed during a series of tests conducted at various times by the Global NACAP, a company that provides vehicle safety ratings and ratings. Mr Arman said it was “worrying” that security measures would be taken to build cars for the same model. In a comparative picture between India and the United States, he said that in 2016, 34,500 people were killed in 4.5 million road accidents in the United States. In that year, there were ten times less in India, or four and a half lakh accidents. But India has five times the number of deaths, 1.5 million more than in the United States. He said the number of road accidents in India was high due to the poor condition of vehicles and roads.
