On the Prowl: All The Standard Acronyms (ATSA)

on

In response to the extremely time-wasting and impractical manner multitudes of acronyms each manufacturer tries to give to the variety of features we get in our cars today, I thought of providing a [vehicular] acronym to rule over all other acronyms. From here on, it would be much less of a hassle to describe how awesome the vehicle is using just one acronym instead of the host of proprietary names people sipping on premium Lavazza or Illy, wearing a suit and tie, in an upmarket office suite, would think of.

The features listed below automatically included in ATSA are:

  1. Anti-lock Braking System (ABS)
  2. Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD)
  3. Brake Assist (BA)
  4. Supplementary Restraint System Airbags (SRS-Airbags)
  5. Traction Control (TC)
  6. Vehicle Stability Control (VSC)

About Andrew Lee

Andrew is a commercial photographer by day and speed demon by night. Don't let his pleasant, approachable demeanour fool you, as he's an incredible fast driver on the circuit! Andrew is a man of many talents (some hidden). He often baffles many with his uncanny ability to stay awake for an inhuman number of days, then disappears. For hours. TCG labels him “Comatose Man” for his nocturnal endeavours and sleep super powers.
