Why the Metrobus burned: In March last year, a metrobus in Şirinevler after the flame of the fire burned near the Topkapi Metrobus stop the previous day, the complete burning of the empty metrobus fire safety systems in public transport vehicles turned eyes.
Experts emphasize that the fire detection and alarm system is made compulsory in passenger vehicles and that the controls on this issue are insufficient.
Alpay Lök, Chairman of the Motor Vehicles Commission of the Chamber of Mechanical Engineers, reminded that the law prepared for the 'Vehicle Fire Detection and Notification System' entered into force at 1 January 2014. Olm The biggest problem is the lack of an address to check that the system is compulsory in public transport, ın says Lök. Çalış The most important problem is the inspection system of the BRT. Since the BRTs are used on divided roads, there are practical applications.
'Quenched with tube'
IETT is one of the organizations that attach importance to technical safety but it should be checked whether the fire detection systems are really functional. To date, public buses and buses that provide intercity service 10 number of oil use due to fires occurred. 10 is not used in metrobus vehicles. However, for many other public transport vehicles other than IETT, the use of 10 oil is not a threat, ındaki he said.
Ahmet Fırat, a company that produces Vehicle Fire Detection and Warning System, said the following about the BRT fire: Fır The system must be in public transportation vehicles produced after 2013. According to the law, this system must be used in public transportation vehicles behind the engine. Control of the system is of great importance. Lack of audit does not meet the necessary requirements of legal regulations. Ministry of Transport, 'Vehicle Fire Detection and Warning System does not take the defect table. He would have warned the driver if the vehicle was on and the detection and alarm system were working. The driver could even intervene with the fire tube, could have extinguished the fire without further growth. The fire detection and warning system 130 detects heat. 10 activates seconds before warning. It seems that there was no system, or it did not work. The cost of a bus for these systems is about 2 thousand pounds. If the extinguishing system is added, the cost goes to 5 thousand pounds. S
Automotive expert Iskender Aruoba, on fire; Değil It is not possible for a bus to be properly and timely maintained. There was probably a problem with care. The vehicles are delivered to the customer after the possible problem tests before leaving the factory. A vehicle that receives service on time does not burn. Definitely we need to call human error.
