Safety Rating System planned for cars may be linked to insurance
And is there a new process for safety checks? I have to take my car in soon and wondered if there are any new requirements. Thanks very much, I appreciate the information in your column. A: New cars are inspected before they are sold, and come with a safety sticker that is valid for two years. After a new cars initial two-year period, it will need to be inspected every 12 months, as required by Hawaiis safety inspection law. Included in this annual inspection requirement are all motor vehicles, including motorcycles, trailers, semi-trailers and pole trailers having a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of 10,000 pounds or less. According to our DMVL administrator, the Hawaii Department of Transportation (HDOT) launched the new Electronic Periodic Motor Vehicle Inspection (EPMVI) program in November 2013. Under the new electronic system, inspection stations must provide automated recording and proof of vehicles current inspection results; this allows the state-wide motor vehicle registration database to be electronically updated. The new system does not present any new requirements for owners getting their vehicle safety inspected; however, it is recommended that you check with the inspection station you will have your vehicle inspected at in case they have a different procedure for their customers since the implementation of the EPMVI program. The maximum amount that can be charged for a vehicle safety inspection for automobiles and trucks is set by HDOT Administrative Rules at $19.19 plus tax; vehicles with window tinting may be charged an additional $5. Motorcycles and trailers may be charged a maximum of $13.24 + tax.

The Ministry of Road Transport & Highways is expected to be the nodal agency to monitor its enforcement, according to a government proposal. India, the sixth largest car market in the world, does not have any strong safety standards but largely cover the basic needs of engineering and emission norms. All new passenger vehicles need to undergo testing before its commercial launch at the Automotive Research Authority of India in Pune or International Centre for Automotive Technology for testing and approvals to meet the mandated norms. While Indian government is still planning to bring in safety reforms with regard to braking and supplemental restrain system (SRS) airbags, which are already a standard in developed markets , the safety rating is expected to force car manufacturers to go for higher safety devices. In Europe, cars with higher NCAP ratings attract much lower premium and are preferred by customers. In India, currently most of the cars do not come with critical safety features like airbags or anti-braking system as standard equipment. “Such ratings could be very useful for the consumer as well as insurance agencies to bring down their overall compensation and damages. The plans are to bring some coordinate with test agencies after some standards are laid with help from the IRDA ,” a senior government official said.
