Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

I see that the load-sensing brake valve produced by Clayton Dewandre has just won the company an award—the third which has been presented in connection with this safety device. The first occasion was when the AA awarded the company a silver medal in 1966, while the Don Safety Award went to Vauxhall last year for the fitment of the valve as standard on the Bedford KM; now Clayton has won recognition on its home ground, receiving the Lincoln Civic Award, which is made annually to the person or organization which has performed a task bringing credit to the city and is itself of outstanding merit. The award is marked by a solid silver trophy.

Clayton's managing director, J. W. Kinchin, had an interesting statistic to pass on at the official function at which he received the award from the Mayor of Lincoln. He said that a nine-month survey of BRS vehicles showed that, in cases involving braking accidents, five times as many vehicles not fitted with the load sensing valves were involved compared with vehicles which were fitted with the valves.
