SUV rollover rates have increased despite the high amount of public attention SUV rollover has received over the recent couple of years. Following the Bridgestone/Firestone Ford crashes that created major headlines due to the high number of deaths, SUV rollover rates are still climbing despite high safety concerns. The popularity of SUV vehicles has escalated quickly over the years and the high number of SUV rollover rates has failed to make an impact in its’ growth.

Over 60% of all SUV fatalities are due to SUV rollovers, with the number of SUV rollover rates showing no sign of slowing down. NHTSA chief Dr. Jeffrey Runge has displayed his concern about the high SUV rollover rates on numerous occasions. Public Citizen consumer group has been actively calling for immediate changes to be made due to the SUV rollover rates that were responsible for 82% of the increase in traffic fatalities in 2002, the highest level in 12 years.

The high SUV rollover rates not only put the SUV occupants at risk for death and other accidents, but other vehicles on the roads that are hit by an SUV rollover. Until safety measures are implemented in order to decrease the growing SUV rollover rate more and more people will continue to suffer loss because of fatal SUV rollover accidents.
