ESC compulsory in Australia from November 2011

 

On 23 June 2009, the Australian Federal Government announced that Electronic stability control (ESC) will be mandatory from 1 November 2011 for all new passenger vehicles and SUVs sold in Australia, and for all models from November 2013.

 

Mike Harris, Executive Director of the Australian Automobile Association (AAA) said: "AAA and Australia's motoring clubs have been advocating for the mandate of ESC as soon as possible for some time, and we welcome this initiative. ESC is a proven life-saver – research from the Monash University Accident Research Centre (MUARC) showed ESC is particularly effective in reducing single vehicle accidents – a 27% reduction in single car crashes and 68% reduction in single-vehicle 4WD crashes."
