The thing is, not all the people who would avoid accidents due to ESC are young. 15 passenger van rollovers dropped substantially after ESC was made standard by Ford and GM (Dodge Sprinter came with ESC standard) and these vehicles are generally driven by middle aged and higher persons. These vehicles tend to have the not so good combo of inexperienced drivers (due to only being driven long distances/on the highway occasionally...ex: churches, colleges), a high center of gravity, and odd weight distribution due to the seating configuration.Instead of mandating that every car sold has electronics that drive the car for you, why not teach people how to drive the car themselves. What happens when the new generation of drivers that don't know how to recover a skid drives an old car that doesn't have these electronics? Or worse, what happens when the electronics fail?
Agree totally.. it would appear they have the correct support and team behind them.Yet another very good episode!
I don't know if there were changes in production staff or if Discovery are simply allowing the team more freedom to do what they want without having to do competitions and celeb features, but this latest iteration of Fifth Gear seems to be the show it always should have been.
