The package of European measures known as the General Safety Regulation includes vehicle construction requirements covering pedestrian safety and a range of additional new technologies. The Department for Transport was involved in developing these requirements but as they are scheduled to apply after we have left the EU, it will be for the British Government to decide whether to mandate the same systems in GB; no decision has yet been taken.
