In Kazakhstan, cars equipped with liquid petroleum gas (LPG) fuel systems will be required to display a special sign starting next year, QazMonitor reports citing the press service of the Ministry of Trade and Integration.

The changes will be effective from January 1, 2024. Vehicles with gas-cylinder equipment must display a distinctive sign: an equilateral yellow triangle with a black border and an exclamation mark spelling "GAS" under it. This sign should be prominently placed for easy identification when entering closed parking lots.

"On November 24, 2023, by the order (№ 466-nk) of the Chairman of the Committee for Technical Regulation and Metrology of the Ministry of Trade and Integration of the Republic of Kazakhstan, amendments were made to the national standard ST RK 1412-2017 'Technical means of road traffic regulation. Rules of application,' developed by KazStandard. This standard is mandatory and specified as a reference in the Rules of the Road, approved by the Minister of Internal Affairs on June 30, 2023 (№ 534)," explained the Ministry.

"Conversion to gas is not always done in a safe manner. Unfortunately, sometimes these vehicles are potentially dangerous to our citizens. As a result, it is illegal for vehicles converted to gas to enter closed parking lots. The introduction of a special sign is aimed at identifying such vehicles and enforcing these restrictions," said Kuanysh Yelikbayev, Chairman of the Technical Regulation and Metrology Committee.
