Pennsylvania Rollover Accidents
In Pennsylvania, rollover accidents account for nearly 3.7% of passenger car accidents yet accounted for 18.5% of fatalities. Accidents involving large trucks, SUVs, and vans have a much worse crash record. Rollovers occur during 5.4% of these vehicles’ accidents and account for 27.7% of their fatalities. This means that rollovers in larger vehicles are 50% deadlier than with smaller passenger cars. However, it’s important to note that rollover accidents have a considerably high fatality rate for all vehicle types.
Causes of rollover accidents include the following:
- Unsafe driving
- Faulty vehicle designs
- Defective parts
- Tire blowouts
- Severe weather
Electronic Stability Control
When a tire loses traction, a vehicle is at risk of becoming unstable and having a rollover. When a person drives a vehicle outside of its performance limits, attempts an emergency maneuver, or drives in severe weather, they might lose tire traction. As a remedy for this danger, many modern vehicles come equipped with traction control systems. Known as Electric Stability Control (ESC), these systems help drivers prevent rollovers by up to 80 percent by reducing power to wheels and preventing them from losing their grip. The NHTSA has required all vehicles produced since 2012 to have ESC. An estimated 5,300-9,600 lives will be saved by this requirement each year.
