A poor workman blames his tools!
I've just bought a Chev Uplander van, which has electronic traction

If it screws up the bad drivers, tough shit! They'd find some other
reason to have their crash anyway, so don't go blaming the traction
control mechanism just because your vehicle supplier couldn't get the
