When you look into purchasing a new car, is the likelihood of a rollover accident something that you consider? It should be. Rollover accidents occur at a surprisingly prevalent rate. It is known that SUVs run the biggest risk of rollover accidents, and we have even seen significant numbers of single car rollover wrecks occur with these vehicles. This is something that you might want to consider when looking into purchasing your next car.
Despite the risk of rollover accidents in SUVs, these vehicles are still very popular. Carmakers have worked to make their SUVs safer in recent years, but the risk still remains. The design of SUVs makes it virtually impossible to entirely remove the risk of a rollover, but there are steps that you can take to reduce that risk.
First, you should never make unnecessary, quick turns that could allow your car to tip over. This can easily send your vehicle rolling and cause serious injury. You should also be extremely cautious in bad weather. Wet roads can reduce the traction that your tires have on the road, making it easier for your car to tip and roll over. Additionally, you should routinely check your tires for signs of wear and tear. Maintaining good tire tread and traction can help you keep your car firmly on the road.
When vehicles roll over, the likelihood of injury is significantly increased.
