Government Proposal May Result in Most Auto Safety Benefits Ever

September 19, 2006

NEW YORK – The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is soon expected to propose requiring that all vehicles have electronic stability control (ESC) systems, which use brakes and engine power to keep a car from veering out of a driver’s control.

To help stations and networks cover this important announcement, Continental Automotive Systems, a supplier of automotive safety technologies and one of the first companies to make ESC available to the mass markets, is offering a news package via satellite with material on the technology that plays an instrumental role in this story. It will include B-roll of vehicles operating with and without ESC, and sound bites with industry experts on the technology and what it means to consumers. Also included in the news package is riveting footage of an actual rollover crash videotaped by a police camera, along with sound bites from the crash survivor.
