Can rollover accidents be prevented by an Electric Stability Control system?
While Electronic Stability Control (ESC) systems do significantly reduce the likelihood of deadly rollover accidents, most SUVs are still at a significant risk of rollover simply because of their high center of gravity. However, ESC systems can, critically, help drivers maintain control over their vehicles. Should a driver engage in extreme driving maneuvers, the system automatically applyies the brakes to individual wheels in order to better direct a vehicle along the driver’s intended path. Electronic Stability Control systems, which will typically engage before the driver even notices, can significantly prevent rollover accidents that result from over steering.
