Electronic stability controls (ESC) help correct the steering and braking of a car when the vehicle appears out of control, whether from an accident or unexpected turns. Specifically, it can help a driver maintain control of the car. ESC is most useful in preventing vehicle rollovers, which is a large concern with SUVs. While ESC is standard in many cars, it still does not exist in every car purchased. As a result, drivers who do not have ESC are more at risk for injury or death.
Electronic Stability Controls Study
According to Consumer Reports, 10,000 lives could be saved every year if all cars had ESC. In fact, the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that ESC can lower the number of automobile accidents by 35%. The federal government has already ordered that by 2012, all new vehicles must contain ESC.
