Where provision is made for carriage of a passenger, the vehicle must be fitted with a passenger hand-hold system, which must take the form of a strap or a hand-grip or hand-grips.

1.1. Strap

The strap must be fitted to the seat or to other parts connected to the frame in such a way that it may easily be used by the passenger. The strap and its attachment must be designed in such a way that they withstand, without snapping, a vertical traction force of 2 000 N applied statically to the centre of the surface of the strap at a maximum pressure of 2 Mpa.

If a hand-grip is used it must be close to the saddle and symmetrical to the median longitudinal plane of the vehicle.

This hand-grip must be designed in such a way that it is able to withstand, without snapping, a vertical traction force of 2 000 N applied statically to the centre of the surface of the hand-grip at a maximum pressure of 2 MPa.

If two hand-grips are used they must be fitted one on each side in a symmetrical manner.

These hand-grips must be designed in such a way that each is able to withstand, without snapping, a vertical traction force of 1 000 N applied statically to the centre of the surface of the hand-grip at a maximum pressure of 1 MPa.
