"SUV Rollovers Continue to Increase"

July 17, 2003
Federal traffic statistics were just released, showing there is even more reason to be concerned about SUV rollover accidents. The 2002 traffic accident reports were concerning already, with the number of fatalities at the highest since 1990 according to the NHTSA. IT was the percentage of SUV rollover accidents causing death that seemed to attract the most attention from the repots, with 82% of the increase in fatal traffic accidents being the result of SUV rollover accidents.

The preliminary statistics that were released by the traffic agency in April had indicated SUV rollovers were causing 53% of the annual fatal traffic accident increases. SUV rollover deaths rose 14% in 2002, but SUVs are still attracting more consumers. Consumer group Public Citizen has been openly critical of the automobile industry and the failure to implement safety changes over the years to curb the number of fatal and serious SUV rollover accidents.
