ASEAN NCAP will be organising the Stop the Crash initiative at the Sepang International Circuit in Malaysia from November 29 to 30, 2016.
The initiative will highlight the various accident avoidance and mitigation technologies. The organisation aims at having electronic stability control (ESC) for cars and ANTI-LOCK BRAKES (ABS) for motorcycles.
The Stop the Crash initiative is lead by Global NCAP with the goal of eliminating the zero star cars within next ten years.
Four months ago two cars scored zero stars in the test conducted by ASEAN NCAP. The two models are - Hyundai Eon and Kia Picanto.
The cars such as - Nissan Navara, Isuzu Mu-X, Suzuki Ciaz and Suzuki Ertiga scored four stars and the Nissan X-Trail received five stars in the same test.
The cars are not rated by the crash test alone. In fact, ASEAN NCAP also factors safety equipment and rates the cars based on the accident avoidance system the car features.
The statement released by ASEAN NCAP states that the organisation believes that these technologies can have a severe impact on more than 3,000 people killed by accidents on the road every day.
ASEAN NCAP also wants to create awareness among public about how these technologies can make roads safer in the ASEAN region. In the upcoming event, more advanced technologies will also be demonstrated to highlight the importance of accident avoidance system.
