Mack Trucks' road full-stability system helps drivers mitigate rollovers and loss-of-control situations on wet and dry roads. The system helps to mitigate vehicle jack-knifes, slides, skids and loss-of-control through advanced monitoring of a variety of vehicle parameters, and the automatic and selective application of vehicle brakes. The Mack road stability advantage system (RSA), through its roll stability program, also helps to mitigate rollovers through advanced sensing and automatic application of the vehicle's brakes.
To see how the road stability advantage system works, have a watch of the following video which demonstrates how the Mack Metro-Liner quickly and automatically intervenes before reaching a critical situation.
