Is Electronic Stability Control Effective?

1 minuteread



Numerous studies around the world have confirmed that ESC is very effective in helping the driving force maintain control of the car, thereby saving lives and reducing the probability of occurrence and severity of crashes. Within the fall of 2004, the National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) confirmed international studies, releasing results of a field study of ESC. The NHTSA concluded that ESC reduces crashes by 35%. Additionally, SUVs with stability control are involved in 67% fewer accidents than SUVs without the system. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) issued its study in June 2006 showing that up to 10,000 fatal crashes can be avoided annually if all vehicles were equipped with ESC. The IIHS study concluded that ESC reduces the likelihood of all fatal crashes by 43%, fatal single-vehicle crashes by 56%, and fatal single-vehicle rollovers by 77–80%.

The European New Car Assessment Program (EuroNCAP) “strongly recommends” that folks buy cars fitted with stability control. The IIHS requires that a vehicle must have ESC as an available option for it to qualify for its Top Safety Pick award for occupant protection and accident avoidance.
