Safety features might be top of mind when you're buying a car, but according to a poll conducted this summer by the Traffic Injury Research Foundation (TIRF), less than 35% of Canadians are actually familiar with all of the safety features on their vehicle.
I was surprised by this statistic until I read about which safety features poll participants were asked about. I know how ABS (anti-lock brakes) work, but how about EBFD (electronic break force distribution) and ESC (electronic stability control)? How do those work? Does my vehicle even have those? And how do they affect my driving?
