(a) No system, no matter how sophisticated, can repeal the laws of physics or overcome careless driving actions. Performance is limited by available traction, which snow, ice and other conditions can affect. When the ESP warning lamp in the speedometer flashes, the driver needs to use less throttle and to adapt speed and driving behavior to prevailing road conditions. Always drive carefully, consistent with conditions. Please always wear your seat belt.
