While accidents that involve vehicle rollovers are relatively rare, you should be aware of the risk"especially if you drive a sport utility vehicle (SUV). Statistics indicate that SUVs are three times more likely to be involved in a rollover accident than passenger cars. And, if a rollover does occur, occupants riding in SUVs are most at risk.

Some SUVs pose a greater risk than others. As a result, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has developed Rollover Resistance Ratings (www.safercar.gov) to supplement the existing frontal and side-impact crash test data that the government organization provides. While the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (www.iihs.org), which is not affiliated with the federal government, also conducts frontal and side-impact crash tests, as well as low-speed bumper tests, currently only NHTSA assesses rollover risk.

New test procedure leads to more accurate ratings

The agency originally assigned rollover ratings to vehicles based on a mathematical calculation that took into consideration a vehicle's weight, width, and center of gravity to create a statistical likelihood of a rollover. The measurement, which NHTSA called the Static Stability Factor, was widely criticized because it did not simulate real-world driving situations. Some 2003 model-year and older vehicles have a rollover rating based solely on this mathematical calculation....
