Safe SUV driving reduces risk of rollover accidents

Sport utility vehicles have a greater chance of rolling over in an accident due to fact that that their height places more weight at a higher level than smaller vehicles. Awareness of the differences between driving an SUV and a smaller vehicle can help Nebraska drivers, especially those new to this type of vehicle, operate an SUV safely and potentially avoid rollover accidents.

Observing speed limits and slowing down on curves and sharp turns enable an SUV driver to stay in control. Going too fast in an SUV when entering a curve exerts extra strain upon the vehicle's higher center of gravity and increases the possibility of the vehicle tipping over.

Additionally, a driver should be conscious of the dangers of overcorrecting a vehicle if it goes off the road or drifts into another lane. A startled driver who quickly turns the wheel on a large vehicle could roll it over. Corrections should be made as gradually as possible while taking the foot off the gas pedal. Collisions with guardrails, medians, other cars, curbs and animals can also trigger an SUV rollover. To reduce the risk of a rollover and the subsequent injury to the vehicle's occupants, hitting an animal instead of swerving may be the better choice.

Even when making safe choices behind the wheel, an accident involving an SUV remains possible because another driver's error might cause it. A person hurt in an accident that was caused by another driver may want to consider the possibility of filing a personal injury lawsuit. By reviewing the results of the police investigation report and other evidence, an attorney can determine whether the other driver's actions could be considered negligence.
