Are Certain Vehicles Higher Risk for Rollover Crashes?
Yes, some vehicles are at a higher risk of rollover than others. SUVs and pickup trucks are more likely to overturn during a crash. This is because these types of vehicles have a higher center of gravity.
Knowing the limitations of your driving ability and your vehicle will help you avoid a rollover crash. While you should always drive with caution, you must adjust your driving habits when operating a high-risk vehicle. For example, you should drive slower when negotiating sharp curves or making a 90-degree turn in an SUV.
