According to the Washington Post:
"The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is set to announce a
preliminary regulation requiring electronic stability control
technology on all new vehicles." .... "Stability control systems use electronic sensors linked to onboard
computers to detect steering problems -- usually at high speeds or on
slippery surfaces -- and activate a vehicle's brakes and automatically
show the engine to help drivers maintain control."
Or people could turn their cellphones off and maybe take driving a little more seriously.
