The Regulation is related to the project of the Ministry of Transport and Communications LVM002:00/2019 (comprehensive reform of the Vehicles Act). With the Regulation, the Finnish Transport and Communications Agency lays down more detailed regulations on the construction and equipment of two and three-wheel vehicles, quadricycles, their trailers and light electric vehicles. The Regulation repeals the Regulation of the Finnish Transport Safety Agency of 5 October 2018 on the construction and equipment of two and three-wheel vehicles, quadricycles, their trailers and light electric vehicles (TRAFI/147282/03.04.03.00/2018), the content of which will be updated to reflect legislative amendments and legal references. In addition, the Regulation is updated with the regulations on the sports and racing bicycles, which will be amended to apply to bicycles intended for use in daylight hours. The requirements for the bicycle reflectors will be updated.
The technical requirements for a customised individual vehicle category L1e-A will be updated to refer to Regulation (EU) No 168/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council on the approval and market surveillance of two- or three-wheel vehicles and quadricycles.
