The article discusses the procedure for conducting a preliminary technical examination of the design of vehicles in operation, in terms of assessing the impact of changes introduced into the vehicle design on road safety. The authors propose a classification of changes introduced into the design of vehicles according to changing design characteristics. Based on the proposed classification, an assessment is made of the impact of changes introduced into the design of vehicles on road safety, as well as on the probability of occurrence of road traffic accidents in the event of introducing a change into the corresponding classification characteristics.
