In India, the government is building 250 meter testing tracks to comply with an order from the head court. These tracks will be used to test brakes on passenger and commercial vehicles.
Earlier in December, the first RTO (Regional Transportation Office) track in Mumbai opened.
Five tracks are opening on 35 acres in Nandivali.
According to Indian Express, “Under the Motor Vehicles Act, it is mandatory for the RTOs to have road track for testing. The vehicles are made to run at a speed of 40 km per hour and asked to apply brakes suddenly. By doing this, the authorities find out at what distance the vehicles stop after applying brakes.’
