I totally agree gazputin... what is worse is that one of the european engine makers actually had emission control stuff built into their engine that neutered the engine when they were doing emissions testing, but kept it turned off most of the time to get the fuel economy and performance that was promised.
It was VW I think but they were the ones that were caught... how likely is it that they are all doing something similar with their computer controlled engines...
Russia should drop all the EU shit they put up with... when Russia turns the gas off eventually either because the EU shoots itself in its own foot or because Russia totally loses patience and realises there are other customers who are not such whiny bitches... and then they will reopen their coal mines and coal fired power generation and lets see how their emissions stack up.
The core irony there is that if they just stuck to 10 or 15 year energy deals the price fluctuations now would not mean much and they could have put all the extra billions they are spending on killing more Russians in the Ukraine and also the higher price for energy on making solar and wind power generation better and more efficient... improved electric motors also means improved electric generators... some sort of carbon capture system you could attach to a tail pipe could have been developed too.
Airbag and ABS are important to reduce fatalities.
I think he means Russia needs to set its own standards and requirements based on Russian experience on Russian roads... things like emergency radios if you plan to drive down roads not often used in winter, and cars that are more cold resistent.
All that lane holding stuff and the auto parking stuff is interesting and would be developed as part of automatically driven cars and vehicles and some people might benefit from these things, but better braking systems and airbags and seat belts of course would be part of their basic standard requirements I would expect.
The rules should be about protecting the people of Russia rather than protecting the car makers.
The same with rules regarding food production and the creation of medicines too... they should be about protecting the people, the consumer... not the companies that make stuff.
