    Abstract

    Currently, the International Committee of Vehicle Inspection (CITA) requires that the status of brakes be checked at Ministry of Transport (MOT) stations. Article 14 of CITA Law No. 29237 states that “the driver of the vehicle must present the vehicle to an MOT station with the right tire pressure.” Unfortunately, in the 2009 MOT Procedure Manual, a procedure for checking tire angles in brake tests at MOT stations is not indicated. In this paper, we present an investigation of the influence of toe angle (the symmetric angle that each wheel makes with the longitudinal axis of the vehicle, also known as tracking or convergence) in relation to the inflation pressure of tires on the measurements of brake force tests at MOT facilities.
