Electronic Stability Control to Become Mandatory in New Zealand

March 12, 2014

Electronic stability control will become mandatory for all vehicles imported to New Zealand to increase safety on the country's roadways, a government official announced.

Associate Transport Minister Michael Woodhouse called the technology "the most significant advance in vehicle safety since the seatbelt" in a press release.

"Mandating this technology will significantly improve road safety in New Zealand," Woodhouse said. "Research indicates ESC can reduce the risk of crashing as a result of lost control by around 30 percent."
