SUV Rollover Accidents

Sport Utility Vehicles (SUVs) are among the most popular vehicles on American streets and highways with more than 20 million of them in service now. They presently account for more than 25% of all new vehicle sales in the U.S.

Contrary to popular belief, SUVs are among the least stable vehicles on the road. Many consumers believe their relative size and perceived engineering advantages make them especially safe. Not true. Because of their higher center of gravity and longer wheelbase, they are more prone to roll over when making sharp turns or swerving to avoid collisions or objects in the roadway.

And, when they do roll, weak roof and pillar construction often results in serious—even fatal—injuries for the occupants. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), more than 60% of all SUV accident deaths occur in rollover accidents; this is more than three times the rate for conventional automobiles.

The addition of weight to an SUV—either passengers or cargo—actually decreases stability and increases the risk of a rollover.
