Why are Metrobuses burning

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.

    1. For decades, the question has always kept me busy: Why do we think that almost all of the accidents that have happened constantly are not in advanced countries? What are our shortcomings and where? The buses are the same, the same (Otto or Diesel), the systems are the same, maybe even the same and / or similar Otto
      First of all, as experts say; The maintenance-repair system is not as it should be. The 15-20 is the almost standard of the year before, even in the way that we can still meet today; a bus stop waiting for the arrival of a bus stop at the last stop in our country can work. But in advanced countries - in my 36 annual overseas adventure - I've never, never met, especially if there's an excuse that is bigger than a misdemeanor such as öz The Crank-Engine is Distorted hiç - I never, never met! If the braking is a weird, it can never be. Of course, this is an exception for backward countries, except for them. Why are such blatants in our country still being heard, lived, read, even explained above by official institutions? So this is our case! So, have we asked ourselves why did we do this in the press?
      Let us suppose that if there was such a situation in a European country .. (1), but a citizen would warn the driver, insist on stopping the engine, the driver also apologized + thank you, would apply unquestionably. Citizens, on top of the police, such as the need to complain to the relevant units of the police does. As a result, both the driver and the relevant transport institution were provided with the right to be punished, and it would be the subject of newspapers. (2) In principle, that transport company would never set up a vehicle with a broken system. But if it was a vehicle that had failed in time, I personally witnessed dozens of backups and alternatives in minutes. And I've never been a wretch because of a public transportation vehicle that has failed. Though, I've had a little delay, though. (3) is never in the public transport system (official, semi-official, special and / or completely special özel), but never 10-No. Even if the use of a fuel, oil, etc. rules, specifications and non-standards is unthinkable! (4) related inspection, visa etc. institutions (TÜV, DECRA, etc.) are obliged to perform their duties in four-quarters!
      However, in other countries, we are able to dilute the song in every country with a mindset in every country, even if the system is taken as a sample. Intense sensations such that they were able to collect visas even remotely from the official service - especially public transport - to TÜV-TURK inspection stations without going for examination.
      This is an extremely serious claim I wonder if these claims are true (?), I do not know, but a correct, honest and trustworthy statement on this subject must be made by the necessary authorities! If the press, at this point, to be a follower of the subject, is one of the tasks!
