The most common cause of a vehicle rollover is aggressive driving, a driving hitting a tree, ditch, tree, guardrail or any other uneven ground. Rollovers are usually not caused by a steering maneuver. Vehicles usually trip on something before the rollover occurs. As much as 95% of rollovers result from trips. Tall vehicles such as SUVs, pickups and vans are more sensitive. The auto industry and government don’t want to assume responsibility for these huge-car fatalities therefore the blame usually goes on the driver and road conditions. Remember after an accident, call 911 then 411 PAIN.
Over-correcting your vehicle and tire grip might also contribute to a rollover. Tires in SUVs, for example, have less grip therefore the chance of rollover might increase. Make sure your tires are always inflated to the pressure recommended. Replace them when worn out. Balding tires are more prone to slide in the rain. Excessive steering or over-correcting might also contribute to the driver’s loss of control. Reducing speed might be safer than over-correcting. About 40% of rollovers involve excessive speeding.
Your vehicle’s lacking stability will also lead to a rollover. Millions of automobiles on the road don’t have Electronic Stability Control (ESC). This feature is necessary to guarantee the safety of your vehicle. If you or someone close to you has been injured due to lack of ESC, contact 411 PAIN. Carrying too much weight on top of your car might also increase the risk of rollover. Your vehicle might be weighted down affecting its stability.
Vehicle rollover accidents are the most dangerous type of accidents. They are more likely to occur in rural areas. These roads tend to be narrower leaving less margin for errors. Be alert and drive safely on these type of roads. Stay calm and call 1-800-411-PAIN .
