Abstract

Technological advances have revolutionized the safety standards of cars in this modern era. It has become the integral part of the car itself and plays a major role in saving thousands if not millions of lives each year. This has brought about the creation of institutions such the Malaysian Institute of Road Safety Research (MIROS) and the introduction of the Malaysian Vehicle Assessment Programme (MyVAP). However, there is still a lack of rules and enforcement of safety standards in Malaysia. This paper was done to critically analyse the current situation in Malaysia regarding the issue of inadequate Acts, rules and regulations governing safety standard of passenger cars. This research represents the initial effort to provide comparisons and perhaps justifications towards an improvement of overall safety standards of cars in Malaysia by improving the already available safety standards or by enacting a new legislation in the future. The important comparative subjects in this research are the Third Australian Design Rule (ADR) governed under the Motor Vehicles Standards Act 1989 in Australia and also the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS) and Regulations which is legislated by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in the United States of America (USA).
