What is a stability control system?
A stability control system is a computerized system that helps a driver maintain control of his or her vehicle. It does this by constantly monitoring the speed and direction of the car, and comparing it to the driver’s input. If the car starts to veer off course, the system will automatically apply the brakes to one or more wheels, and may also reduce engine power. This can help prevent the car from spinning out of control, or from rolling over in a collision. Many modern cars are equipped with stability control systems, and they can be very effective at preventing accidents. However, they are not perfect, and should not be relied upon to completely avoid all accidents. Drivers should always use caution when driving, and should never assume that their car will be able to automatically avoid all accidents.
