NTSB Chief Praises Stability Control Rule

Unlike the chief of Public Citizen, the chief of the National Transportation Safety Board likes the new rule from the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration that will require Electronic Stability Control systems in all U.S. passenger vehicles by 2012.

"This is an extremely positive move," NTSB Chairman Mark V. Rosenker said April 5. "Widespread use of ESC will reduce loss-of-control and rollover crashes and lead to a substantial reduction of deaths and injuries on our highways. It is an excellent example of using advances in technology to bring down the unacceptable toll of vehicle accidents."

NTSB has advocated adoption of ESC since it investigated a 2002 accident near Largo, Md., that involved a Ford Explorer, an SUV, and minivan. The accident killed five people.
