in the Future, provision is made greater demands on vehicle manufacturers, if they hope to obtain the maximum five stars by crashtests at Euro NCAP.

Both parts must be to give a more accurate picture of not just the protection of the driver and passengers in your car, but also assess whether the tested car hits an oncoming car unnecessarily hard.

- Inattention is a contributing factor in too many accidents. Therefore, it is positive to Euro NCAP's stricter requirements for new cars now also include the monitoring of the driver's attention while driving, like the responsibility for the safety of vulnerable road users is a natural extension of car zones, says Søren W. Rasmussen.
- even Though the Euro NCAP through the years has continuously tightened the requirements for safety in cars, the car manufacturers managed to follow to the benefit of road safety for both soft and hard road users. Naturally, we have an expectation that they will continue to do, he says.
The first cars have not yet been to the exam after the new, stricter requirements, since coronapandemien have delayed this spring's planned Euro NCAP test. The first test should be published after the summer break, inform the FDM.
