Yoks ensures that their drivers are trained. The purpose of the training is to give participants involved in various aspects of road safety work, a basic understanding of those vehicle-related aspects which must affect the safe operation of the vehicle on a road
Two main purpose of vehicle lights:
Lighting is designed to provide a light source which enables other road users to see the vehicle on the road. The headlamps are designed to give sufficient light on the road surface to enable the driver to drive at night at a speed consistent with the reach of the lights
Most vehicles of European origin have circular or rectangular lamps with two lamps (one on each side)
Other front lamps
Vehicle must also have two front position lamps (also called side lights or parking lights). The purpose of these is to mark the front of the vehicle when stationary in the dark.
The Rear Lights
•Rear Position Lights
Vehicles must have two rear position lamps (also tail lights) which must give a steady red light.
The two stop lamps should give a red light when the footbrake is applied. It is often part of the rear lamp cluster and should have a 21 watt tungsten bulb as light source.
A vehicle must have two direction indicator lamps which show an amber light to the front and an amber light to the rear.
The purpose of steering is to enable the vehicle to be pointed in the desired direction and to control its movement and behaviour.
The primary purpose of the vehicle suspension was to improve the comfort of the passengers over uneven surfaces.
1.Parking Brake (Handbrake): The purpose is in twofold:
a)To hold the vehicle safely when parked or stationary e.g. a on hill.
b)To act as an emergency brake.
2.Main Braking System (footbrake): is the vehicle’s main braking system and must be of sufficient design to stop the vehicle safely under all conditions. It must be stressed that the brakes are the main mechanical road safety feature of a vehicle.
The wheel are intended to provide safe seating for the tyres and provide safe running of the highway for acceleration, steering and braking. They are intended to retain the tyre on the wheel without any danger of the tyre coming off during running and, for cars, are generally designed to keep the air in a tubeless tyre.
The tyres are designed to provide contact with the road surface to enable the vehicle to steer, accelerate and stop.
