I'd rather use my own feet and hands!
I think one of the most common types of accident which DSC helps prevent is when the nearside wheel ends up in a dirt shoulder, or puddle or whatever and has a lot more drag and/or a lot less traction than the offside wheels.
Driver overcorrects to offside, crosses centre line *BAM*
