  1. Does anyone else wonder why this is totally out of control in Lakewood?

    Rollovers are complex crash incidents and are particularly violent in nature. Rollovers, more so than other types of crashes, reflect the interaction of the driver, road, vehicle, and environmental factors. So while vehicle type does play a significant role, other factors such as driver behavior (CELL PHONE AND TEXTING) and road and environmental conditions can also cause a vehicle to roll over.


    All types of vehicles can rollover. However, taller, narrower vehicles such as SUVs, pickups, and VANS have higher centers of gravity, and thus are more susceptible to rollover if involved in a single-vehicle crash.


    Fatal rollover crashes are speed-related more often than fatal non-rollover crashes. Some 40% of fatal rollover crashes involved excessive speeding . Additionally, nearly ¾ of fatal rollovers took place where the vehicle exceeded posted speed limits traveling 55 miles per hour or higher.


    Nearly half of all fatal rollover crashes involve alcohol . Impairment can result from any blood alcohol concentration (BAC) above .00 . Even a small amount of alcohol will negatively affect your judgment, muscular coordination, and vision, making you more likely to lose control of your vehicle.


    Rural roads tend to be undivided and without barriers. They are thus more likely to be the scene of a fatal rollover. Almost ¾ of fatal rollovers occur in rural areas where the posted speed limit is typically 55 miles per hour or higher.


    NHTSA data also suggest that over 90% of the vehicles in fatal, single-vehicle rollover crashes were involved in routine driving maneuvers (going straight or negotiating a curve) at the time of the crash. This further suggests that driver behavior (distraction, inattentiveness, as in CELL PHONE AND TEXTING, speeding, and impaired driving) plays a significant role in rollover crashes.


    NHTSA data show that nearly 85% of all rollover-related fatalities are the result of single-vehicle crashes. This means that the majority of rollover crashes and fatalities do not involve any other vehicle besides the one that rolled over, further suggesting that driver behavior such as CELL PHONE AND TEXTING plays a significant role in rollover crashes.

    CELL PHONE AND TEXTING cause statistically more fatalities than alcohol impaired driving.

  2. maybe if we would stop over developing, and the roads would be able to handle the traffic people would be able to drive like menschen. People have become so used to driving aggressively b.c. there is no other choice
