Realised impacts of electronic stability control in Finland

Abstract

Electronic stability control (ESC) is one of several in-vehicle safety systems. The objective of the study is to estimate the realised safety effects of ESC in Finland in the current situation using a mathematical model. The modelling of impacts was based on a framework in which the outcomes of accidents are determined by exposure of road users, accident risk and accident severity. The exposure to risk was modelled in a simplistic way by assuming that the share of vehicles with ESC roughly equals the share of exposure to accident risk in the whole vehicle fleet. The most important uncertainties and potential sources of error are reviewed briefly. The results of the model suggest that approximately 21 fatalities and 392 injuries were avoided in Finland in 2013 because of ESC.
