Vehicle Safety in Langdon, AB: What is Electronic Roll Mitigation?

(Posted on Jun 13, 2021 at 11:35AM by Josh Lew)
<a href="[Used%2CDodge%2CJourney%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C]"><img src="/images/upload/June_2021/Dodge_Journey_ERM_System.png"alt="Blue 2018 Dodge Journey driving on a snowy surface with hills in the background"/></a>The 2018 Dodge Journey has a full range of safety features. While elements like anti-lock brakes and front and side curtain airbags are familiar to every driver, some tools - such as Electronic Stability Control (ESC) with roll mitigation - are less understood (but equally essential).  

The electronic roll mitigation (ERM) feature uses the ESC’s sensors to track and prevent any movement that might result in the tires lifting off the pavement. In particular, the system monitors the speed of the vehicle and the rate of turn of the steering wheel. 

If it detects possible wheel lift, the electronic roll mitigation feature takes control of the brakes, applying them as needed to reduce the chances of a rollover. It can also cut the engine if necessary to lower the speed of your vehicle.

The roll mitigation component is a part of your vehicle’s electronic stability control, and therefore, it won’t work when the ESC system is off. Also, it does not trigger unexpectedly and will only deploy in response to high speeds or very aggressive steering. 

If you would like to learn more about the electronic roll mitigation system on the 2018 Dodge Journey or any of our other vehicles, contact our Calgary dealership today.
