NOTE 2 Due to railway systems constraints the level of visibility provided to the persons outside the defined anthropometric range may vary. It is up to the operator's safety management system to address the potential restriction of front visibility, if the driver uses extreme seat positions combined with extreme body heights."
The actual seating and positioning habits of drivers regarding visibility, whether drivers are in or outside the range of anthropometric data of this standard is outside the scope of this document."
