Educating Nebraska residents about rollover crashes

Even in a serious crash, the odds of a car rolling over are slim. However, while they account for only 3 percent of all serious accidents, 30 percent of those who die in a car accident die because the car rolled over. Although taller vehicles that have a higher center of gravity such as a large truck or SUV are more susceptible to rolling over, any vehicle can roll.

Large truck accident statistics

Drivers in Nebraska may be interested in knowing how safe a large truck may be on the highway. The definition of a large truck is any vehicle that is rated to weigh more than 10,000 pounds. In 2012, there was a 4 percent increase in fatalities involving large trucks and a 5 percent increase in fatalities for those occupying other vehicles involved in the crash.

Safety guidelines for commercial drivers

Commercial drivers in Nebraska are bound by the guidelines set forth by the Federal Motor Commission Safety Administration, including limitations on their hours of service. These rules are put in place to minimize the risk of accidents and help keep people safe on the roadways. The Hours of Service for Drivers Final Rule was first published in December 2011, but provisions were changed in 2013.
