Technology Available to Stop SUV Rollovers
Posted on October 22, 2003
In 2002 SUV rollover accidents caused a staggering 10,000 deaths. Despite these large numbers American automotive companies have not added new technology (electronic stability control technology) that can help avoid rollover accidents. This technology is being used in many German and Japanese vehicles, but only in 6% of cars built in America. A Mercedes-Benz executive compared the importance of the technology to anti-lock brakes and seat belts.
