anti-skid electronic stability control to be compulsory for all new cars in NZ from July
Pioneered In 1987 by Mercedes-Benz and BMW, electronic stability control helps reduce skids when the vehicle is not going where the driver is steering and thus makes cars safer. Most new cars already have it. The government says that all imported second hand cars will be required to have it by 2020. It can not be retro-fitted, however, so we assume that exemptions will be made for classic cars.
