Un­der­stand­ing ESC

Herald Sun - Motoring - - Onroad -

ELEC­TRONIC sta­bil­ity con­trol helps driv­ers avoid crashes by re­duc­ing the dan­ger of skid­ding, or los­ing con­trol as a re­sult of over-steer­ing. It only kicks in when a driver loses con­trol and uses com­puter-con­trolled technology to brake in­di­vid­ual wheels and help bring the car back on track, with­out the dan­ger of fish-tail­ing. Monash Uni­ver­sity re­search shows ESC re­duces the risk of: Sin­gle car crashes by 25 per cent Sin­gle4WDcrashes by 51 per cent
