What happens when a car rolls over?
A vehicle rollover is aggressive in nature. This particularly violent crash occurs when the driver, the vehicle, the road, and weather conditions can all play a role in the accident. If the driver is acting erratic, the road is slippery and the weather is hazy, the chances of your vehicle rolling over increases. All kinds of cars have the potential to roll over, however, the taller the vehicle, the more likely it is to rollover. This is true with SUVs, pickup trucks, and vans as they have a higher center of gravity.
According to the 2017 Florida Crash Report, 175 fatal rollover accidents were recorded, making overturns/rollovers the third most common kind of fatal crash in Florida.
What is the most common cause of a vehicle rollover accident?
One common cause of vehicle rollover accidents is when a driver engages in risky behavior such as speeding or swerving. When a driver speeds, they are more likely to lose control of their vehicle and are less able to slow down if there is a road obstruction or a parked driver in their way. Along with speeding, aggressive driving such as swerving, specifically at high speeds, is another common way of flipping your vehicle- especially when driving a heavily loaded truck. Another common cause of a vehicle rollover accident is driving intoxicated. In fact, nearly half of all fatal rollover crashes involve alcohol. Alcohol has serious repercussions when ingested before or during the operation of a motor vehicle. For one, the driver’s judgment is impaired, vision is blurred, and reaction time is slowed.
What car has the highest rollover rate?
All cars with the highest rollover rates happen to be either an SUV, a pickup truck, a van, or a Jeep Wrangler! A few of the most common cars with the highest rollover rates include the 2017 Chevrolet Colorado with a 22% chance of tipping, a 2017 Cadillac Escalade with a 22.9% chance of tipping, a 2016 Chevrolet Tahoe with a 22.9% chance of tipping, a 2016 GMC Yukon also with the 22.9% chance of tipping, a 2016 Jeep Renegade with a 23% chance of tipping, a 2016 Ford F-150 with a 23.7% chance of tipping, a 2016 RAM 2400 4×4 with a 23.7% chance of tipping, a 2017 Toyota 4Runner with a 24.6% chance of tipping, a 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited 4WD with a 27.9% chance of tipping, and finally, the car with the highest rollover rate is a 2017 Nissan NV3500 with a 30.6% chance of tipping.
