Whereas, in view of the increase in maximum design speed to 40 km/h and of developments in the state of the art, it is now appropriate to adapt the requirement concerning the tolerance in speed measurement referred to in point 1.5 of the Annex to Directive 74/152/EEC;

Whereas the measures provided for in this Directive are in accordance with the opinion of the Committee on adaptation to technical progress introduced by Directive 74/150/EEC,

2. From 1 October 2004, Member States:
