The blogger Yuri Sanberg made the following conclusions from the tragic consequences of a car accident arranged by Mikhail Yefremov for the domestic auto industry:
“Let's change the dominant.
Just a ready-made advertisement for the Jeep Grand Cherokee: "Even with cocaine and grass you're safe!" Although I do not like such an advertisement.
The same domestic van - why is it so unsafe?
Do we want to test the cars according to the Euro NCAP system, and not according to the outdated (everyone shouts with one voice - long outdated!) UNECE methodology? And what about the declared RuNCAP? Still not in use?
And why do domestic insurance companies stand aloof from the safety problems of domestic cars? For Americans, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety even flunked Mercedes and Audi on impacts with small overlap (frontal impact on a hard obstacle with a quarter “front end”). Insurers, of course, will not overwhelm anyone, our life costs a penny, and few insure it. But to insist on the commission participation of supervisors, insurers and experts in tests - no?
Maybe the owners of Lada Granta should insure the car with such a high coefficient (similar to barrage customs duties) so that the purchase becomes generally unprofitable? And to make them become unprofitable?
The safety of cars shipped abroad is higher than for models of cars intended for the domestic market. Cars are supplied to Europe that comply with European legislation and economic standards, the manufacturer admits. We don’t feel sorry for our citizens, but how do we need the currency for the producer?
Farther. Having created a light commercial vehicle on a standard base, do we need to oblige the manufacturer to load the van fully, again to pass all the tests (including emergency braking, the "moose test" and banks), and not to pretend that we are still dealing with an ordinary passenger car? Is it not wise to oblige to pass certification again?
Is it true that Lada Granta (repeatedly recognized as the best-selling car of the year) and commercial vans built on its basis have low safety in frontal impact? Are the Lada Granta crushing zones really safe at the level of the 80s? And is it true that in an accident, even at a speed of 60 kilometers per hour, the chances of survival of the Lada Granta driver are minimal?
We need to listen to the CEO: maybe it's time to remove the machine from the conveyor? Does another domestic manufacturer want to withdraw their wagons to finalize - how unsafe? Don't want to? The salaries of top managers are first-class, and cars are produced in a low class. A strange understanding of justice.
Working solidarity, of course, is absent in the country of victorious capitalism. And this is the question: do the workers really care that they collect coffin machines?
Let the experts say it. Is it a tragic accident, or a system fact related to the design features of Lada Granta, and some cars are safe (from Europe and the USA) on the roads of the country, while others are unsafe (Russia), but they have to be worked on (due to cost optimization by the owner ), exposing yourself to everyday risk? Is it permissible today to release a car with one - the driver’s! - airbag?
Are we not sorry for the passenger?
Should financial, estate-social and power distance affect safety of road users?
Or is the Constitution (the one whose amendments have long been ready for voting) still for some reason promising the equality of the right to life on public roads?”
