|Topic: SUV Have Higher Roll-Over Danger - They are Taller|
you ever noticed how much taller many SUV's are than regular cars? Take
a look around you and you will see that they sway more in curves and
that they are the most common vehicle you see these days on their tops
or sides in freeway accidents.
There is a lot of concern published in the media these days about the serious dangers SUV's pose because of their higher propensity to roll over. Two things are left out of most discussions. First, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration , SUV's have about the same overall death rate as regular cars. While there are more death from roll over accidents, there are fewer deaths in other kinds of accidents, generally because SUV's are heavier. Second, it is seldom mentioned that those killed in roll over accidents were not wearing seat belts while others in the same vehicle who were wearing seat belts survived. We advise all drivers to always wear seat belts and to assure all passengers are wearing seat belts!
There are reasons SUV's are taller and there are reasons they have a higher roll over danger than the average automobile. Press the yellow button "2" above to learn why.
