Electronic stability control has saved thousands of lives since it started becoming a standard feature on cars, according to a new study by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, or NHTSA. The technology, which uses computer-controlled braking on individual wheels to help the driver maintain control of the car, saved more than 2,200 lives from 2008 to 2010, NHTSA says. The safety feature has been phased in since 2008 and became mandatory on all new passenger vehicles last year.
