67.1.9.                           ‘Angles of Geometric Visibility’ means the angles which determine the minimum solid-angle zone in which the apparent surface of the ‘Lamp’ must be visible;   this solid-angle zone is defined by the segments of the sphere of which the centre coincides with the centre of reference of the ‘Lamp’ and the equator is parallel to the ground; these segments are determined in relation to the axis of reference;   the horizontal angles beta correspond to the longitude and the vertical angles alpha to the latitude. There must be no obstacle on the inside of the angles of geometric visibility to the propagation of light from any part of the apparent surface of the ‘Lamp’. No account is taken of obstacles existing at the time of approval, where required, of the ‘Lamp’;

67.1.10.                       ‘Extreme Outer Edge’, on either side of the vehicle means the plane parallel to the median longitudinal plane of the vehicle and touching the lateral extremity of the vehicle, disregarding the projection or projections

67.1.10.1.                of rear-view mirrors;

67.1.18.                      ‘Concealable Illuminating Lamp’ means a headlamp capable of being partly or completely hidden when not in use. This result may be achieved by means of a movable cover, by movement of the headlamp, or by any other suitable means; the term “vanishing lamp” is used more particularly to describe a ‘Lamp’ which, by its movement, can be concealed inside the bodywork;

67.2.                                REQUIREMENTS

67.2.1.                          Lighting and light-signalling devices shall be installed to comply with the requirements of this Rule.

67.3.                                GENERAL SPECIFICATIONS

67.3.1.                          The lighting and light-signalling devices shall be so fitted that in normal conditions of use, and notwithstanding the vibrations to which they may be subjected, they retain the characteristics prescribed by this Rule and enable the vehicle to comply with the requirements of this Rule. In particular, it shall not be possible for the ‘Lamps’ to be inadvertently maladjusted.

67.3.2.                          The ‘Illuminating lamps’ shall be so installed that correct adjustment of their orientation can easily be carried out.

67.3.3.                          For all light-signalling devices the reference axis of the lamp when fitted to the vehicle shall be parallel to the bearing plane of the vehicle on the road; in addition, it shall be perpendicular to the median longitudinal plane of the vehicle in the case of side reflex reflectors and parallel to that plane in the case of all other light-signalling devices. A tolerance of 3° shall be allowed in each direction. In addition, if specifications for fitting are provided by the manufacturer they shall be complied with.

67.3.4.                          In the absence of specific instructions, the height and orientation of the ‘Lamps’ shall be verified with the vehicle unladen and placed on a flat horizontal surface, its median longitudinal plane being vertical and the handlebars being in the position corresponding to the straight ahead movement. The tyre pressures shall be those prescribed by the manufacturer for the particular conditions of loading required in this Regulation.

67.3.5.                          In the absence of specific instructions ‘Lamps’ constituting a pair and having the same function shall:

67.3.5.1.                    be mounted symmetrically in relation to the median longitudinal plane;

67.3.5.2.                    be symmetrical to one another in relation to the median longitudinal plane;

67.3.5.3.                    satisfy the same colorimetric requirements;   and

67.3.5.4.                    have identical nominal photometric characteristics.

67.3.6.                          In the absence of specific instructions, ‘Lamps’ having different functions may be independent or be grouped, combined or incorporated in one device, on condition that each such ‘Lamp’ satisfies the requirements applicable to it.

67.3.7.                          The maximum height above ground shall be measured from the highest point and the minimum height from the lowest point of the ‘Illuminating Surface’. For ‘Passing Lamps’, the minimum height from the ground shall be measured from the bottom of the lens or the reflector, whichever of these is the higher.

67.3.7.1.                    The position, as regards width, will be determined from the edge of the ‘Illuminating surface’ which is the furthest from the median longitudinal plane of the vehicle when referred to the overall width, and from the inner edges of the ‘Illuminating Surfaces’ when referred to the distance between the ‘Lamps’.

67.3.8.                          In the absence of specific instructions, no ‘Lamps’ other than ‘Direction Indicator Lamps’ and the ‘Vehicle Hazard Warning Signal’ shall be flashing ‘Lamps’.

67.3.9.                          No red light which could give rise to confusion emitted from a ‘Lamp’ as defined in clause 67.1.5 shall be visible toward the front and no white light which could give rise to confusion emitted from a ‘Lamp’ as defined in clause 67.1.4 other than from the ‘Reversing Lamp’ shall be visible towards the rear. ‘Lamps’ used to illuminate the vehicle’s interior shall not be taken into consideration in this respect.

67.3.9.1.                    This requirement is considered to have been met if:

67.3.9.1.1.              For the visibility of a red light towards the front:   there must be no direct visibility of a light-emitting surface of a red ‘Lamp’ if viewed by an observer moving within Zone 1 in a transverse plane situated 25 m in front of the vehicle (see appendix 2),

67.3.9.1.2.              For the visibility of a white light towards the rear:   there must be no direct visibility of a light-emitting surface of a white ‘Lamp’ if viewed by an observer moving within Zone 2 in a transverse plane situated 25 m behind the vehicle (see appendix 2).

67.3.9.2.                    In their respective planes, the zones 1 and 2 explored by the eye of the observer are bounded:

67.3.9.2.1.              in height, by two horizontal planes 1 m and 2.2 m respectively above the ground,

67.3.9.2.2.              in width, by two vertical planes which, forming to the front and to the rear respectively an angle of 15° outwards from the vehicle’s median longitudinal plane, pass through the point or points of contact of vertical planes parallel to the vehicle’s median longitudinal plane delimiting the vehicle’s overall width; if there are several points of contact, the foremost shall correspond to the forward plane and the rearmost to the rearward plane.

67.3.10.                      The electrical connections shall be such that the ‘Front Position (Side) Lamp’, the ‘Rear Position (Side) Lamp’ and the ‘Rear-registration-plate Illuminating Device’ can only be switched on or off   simultaneously.

67.3.11.                      In the absence of specific instructions, the electrical connection shall be such that the ‘Main-beam Headlamp’, the ‘Dipped-beam Headlamp’ and the fog lamp cannot be switched on unless the ‘Lamps’ referred to in clause 67.3.10 above are likewise switched on. This requirement need not, however, be satisfied in the case of the ‘Main-beam Headlamp’ and ‘Dipped-beam Headlamp’ where their luminous warnings consist in switching on the ‘Dipped-beam Headlamp’ intermittently, at short intervals, or in switching on the ‘Main-beam Headlamp’ intermittently, or in switching on the ‘Dipped-beam Headlamp’ and ‘Main-beam Headlamp’ alternately at short intervals.

67.3.12.                      Tell-tale lamps

67.3.12.1.                Every tell-tale lamp shall be readily visible to a driver in the normal driving position.

67.3.12.2.                Where a ‘Circuit-closed Tell-tale’ is prescribed by this Regulation, it may be replaced by an ‘Operating Tell-tale’.

67.3.13.                      Concealable ‘Lamps’

67.3.13.1.                The concealment of ‘Lamps’ shall be prohibited, with the exception of the ‘Main-beam Headlamps’, the ‘Dipped-beam Headlamps’ and the ‘Front Fog Lamps’, which may be concealed when they are not in use.

67.3.13.2.                An illuminating device in the position of use shall remain in that position if the malfunction referred to in clause 67.3.13.2.1 occurs alone or in conjunction with one of the malfunctions described in clause 67.3.13.2.2.

67.3.13.2.1.          The absence of power for manipulating the ‘Lamp’.

67.3.13.2.2.          A break, impedance, or short-circuit to earth in the electrical circuit, defects in the hydraulic or pneumatic leads, Bowden cables, solenoids or other components controlling or transmitting the energy intended to activate the concealment device.

67.3.13.3.                In the event of a defect in the concealment control or other defects referred to in clauses 67.3.13.2.1 and 67.3.13.2.2, a concealed lighting device shall be capable of being moved into the position of use without the aid of tools.

67.3.13.4.                It shall be possible to move lighting devices into the position of use and switch them on by means of a single control. It shall also be possible to move them into the position of use without switching them on. However, in the case of grouped main-beam and ‘Dipped-beam Headlamps’, the control referred to above is required only to activate the ‘Passing Lamps’.

67.3.13.5.                It shall not be possible deliberately to stop, from the driver’s ‘Seat’, the movement of switched-on lighting devices before they reach the position of use. Where there is a risk that other road users may be dazzled by the movement of the headlamps it shall not be possible to switch on the headlamps before they have reached their final position.

67.3.13.6.                When the concealment device has a temperature of -30°C to + 50°C the headlamp must be capable of reaching the fully-open position within three seconds of initial operating of the control.
