It shall also be in good working order. When these vehicles are fitted with systems, parts and equipment that are in conformity with the conditions of construction, fitting and utilization according to technical provisions of international legal instruments referred to in Article 8, paragraph 5bis of this Convention, they shall be deemed to be in conformity with Annex 5.



Amendements aux articles 8 et 39 de la Convention de 1968 sur la circulation routière

Amendement à l’article 8

Un nouveau paragraphe (le paragraphe 5 bis) va être ajouté à l’article 8. Ce paragraphe 5 bis se lira comme suit:

  • «5 bis: Les systèmes embarqués ayant une incidence sur la conduite du véhicule sont réputés conformes au paragraphe 5 du présent article et au premier paragraphe de l’article 13 s’ils sont conformes aux prescriptions en matière de construction, de montage et d’utilisation énoncées dans les instruments juridiques internationaux relatifs aux véhicules à roues et aux équipements et pièces susceptibles d’être montés et/ou utilisés sur un véhicule à roues3);

Les systèmes embarqués ayant une incidence sur la conduite d’un véhicule qui ne sont pas conformes aux prescriptions en matière de construction, de montage et d’utilisation susmentionnées sont réputés conformes au paragraphe 5 du présent article et au premier paragraphe de l’article 13 pour autant qu’ils puissent être neutralisés ou désactivés par le conducteur».

Amendement à l’article 39

Le premier paragraphe de l’article 39, qui se lit actuellement comme suit:

  • 1. Toute automobile, toute remorque et tout ensemble de véhicules en circulation internationale doivent satisfaire aux dispositions de l’annexe 5 de la présente Convention. Ils doivent, en outre, être en bon état de marche.

doit être complété comme suit:

Lorsque ces véhicules sont équipés de systèmes, de pièces et d’équipements qui sont conformes aux prescriptions techniques de construction, de montage et d’utilisation énoncées dans les instruments juridiques internationaux visés au paragraphe 5 bis de l’article 8 de la présente Convention, ils sont réputés conformes à l’annexe 5.

Le paragraphe premier modifié de l’article 39 se lira donc comme suit:

  • 1. Toute automobile, toute remorque et tout ensemble de véhicules en circulation internationale doivent satisfaire aux dispositions de l’annexe 5 de la présente Convention. Ils doivent, en outre, être en bon état de marche. Lorsque ces véhicules sont équipés de systèmes, de pièces ou d’équipements qui sont conformes aux prescriptions techniques de construction, de montage et d’utilisation énoncées dans les instruments juridiques internationaux visés au paragraphe 5 bis de l’article 8 de la présente Convention, ils sont réputés conformes à l’annexe 5.

Belarus, 18 juni 1974

The Byelorussian Soviet Socialist Republic does not consider itself bound by the provisions of article 52 of the Convention on Road Traffic stating the disputes which relate to the interpretation or application of the Convention may be referred, at the request of any of the Parties, to the International Court of Justice.

The Byelorussian Soviet Socialist Republic declares that the provisions of article 45 of the Convention on Road Traffic, under which a number of States may not become parties to this Convention, are discriminatory in character, and it considers that the Convention on Road Traffic should be open for participation by all interested States without any discrimination or restrictions.

The Byelorussian Soviet Socialist Republic declares that the provisions of article 46 of the Convention on Road Traffic are anachronistic and at variance with the Declaration of the United Nations General Assembly on the Granting of Independence to Colonial Countries and Peoples (resolution 1514 (XV) of 14 December 1960).

België, 16 mei 1989

Reservations to article 10(3) and 18(3).

Brazilië, 29 oktober 1980

  • Pursuant to the provisions of chapter IV, article 41, paragraph 2 (b), Brazil refuses to recognize the validity in its territory of driving permits held by persons under eighteen years of age.

  • Pursuant to the provisions of chapter IV, article 41, paragraph (c), Brazil, referring to annexes 6 and 7 covering models of domestic driving permits, refuses to recognize the validity in its territory for the driving of motor vehicles or combinations or vehicles in Categories C, D, and E of driving permits held by persons under twenty-one years of age.

Reservations with respect to the following articles and annex:

  • Article 20, paragraph 2 (a) and (b);

  • Article 23, paragraph 2 (a);

  • Article 40;

  • Article 41, paragraph 1 (a), (b) and (c) (partial reservations);

  • Annex 5, paragraph 5 (c); and

  • Annex 5, paragraphs 28, 39 and 41 (partial reservations).

Declarations as regards the above-mentioned partial reservations:

  • (a) Brazil’s partial reservation to chapter IV (Drivers of Motor Vehicles), article 41 (Validity of Driving Permits), paragraphs 1 (a), (b), and (c), refers to the fact that drivers issued permits in left-hand drive countries cannot drive in Brazil before taking a road test for right-hand driving.

  • (b) The partial reservation to Annex 5 (Technical Conditions Concerning Motor Vehicles and Trailers), chapter II (Lights and reflecting devices), paragraph 28, is against the triangular form of the reflex reflectors required for every trailer, inconvenient for Brazil since the triangular shape is used for emergency signal devices to alert drivers ahead on the road.

  • (c) In Annex 5, chapter II, paragraph 39, Brazil’s reservation refers solely to the amber colour of the direction-indicators, since only red lights should be used at the rear of vehicles.

  • (d) The partial reservation made to Annex 5, paragraph 41, refers to the fact that in Brazil reversing lights fitted on motor vehicles shall emit only white light.

Bulgarije, 8 november 1968

The People’s Republic of Bulgaria declares that the provisions of article 45 of the Convention on Road Traffic, under which a number of States may not become parties to this Convention, are discriminatory in character, and it considers that the Convention on Road Traffic should be open for participation by all interested States without any discrimination or restrictions.

The People’s Republic of Bulgaria declares that the provisions of article 46 of the Convention on Road Traffic are anachronistic and at variance with the Declaration of the United Nations General Assembly on the Granting of Independence to Colonial Countries and Peoples.

Bulgarije, 28 december 1978

In the People’s Republic of Bulgaria mopeds are treated as motor cycles for the purposes of the application of the Convention on Road Traffic (art. 54, para. 2).

Congo, Democratische Republiek, 25 juli 1977

With reference to the pertinent provisions of the Convention Zaire shall not treat mopeds as motor cycles.

Cuba, 30 september 1977

The Republic of Cuba declares that the provisions of article 45, paragraph 1, of the Convention, which deals with matters affecting the interests of all States, are of a discriminatory nature in that they preclude the right of a number of States to become signatories and parties to the Convention, contrary to the principle of sovereign equality of States.

The Republic of Cuba declares that the provisions of article 46 of the Convention, are not applicable as they are contrary to the Declaration on the Granting of Independence to Colonial Countries and Peoples (resolution 1514), adopted by the United Nations General Assembly on 14 December 1960, which proclaims the necessity of bringing to a speedy and unconditional end colonialism in all its forms and manifestations.

The Revolutionary Government of the Republic of Cuba does not consider itself bound by the provisions of article 52 of the Convention on Road Traffic regarding the referral to the International Court of Justice of any dispute with another Contracting Party.

The Republic of Cuba declares that it treats mopeds as motor cycles, in accordance with article 54 (2) of the Convention.

Denemarken, 3 november 1986

Article 18, paragraph 2 according to which road users coming from a path or graved track shall give way to vehicles on the road.

Article 33, paragraph 1 (d) according to which it shall be permissible to use parking light also when driving outside a built-up area.

Annex 5, 17 (c) according to which the total permissible weight of a trailer without a service brake may not exceed half the sum of the hauling vehicle's unladen weight and the driver’s weight.

Article 54, paragraph 2: for the purposes of the Convention Denmark treats mopeds whose maximum design speed exceeds 30 km per hour as motor cycles.

… until further notice the [Convention] shall not apply to the Faroe Islands and Greenland.
