The American Spectator has an article on SUV rollovers (click above). This is another one of those problems where the trial lawyers have totally obscured the truth. I even saw a piece of video on TV they were going to try to inject into a Ford Explorer trial where they built a sled with an Explorer mounted sideways and tilted at maybe a 20 degree angle, and with a "curb" at the bottom of the slant. Then they ran the sled up to 60 mph and slammed it into a deadman in the pavement! The sled stopped PDQ! So the Explorer tripped over the "curb" and went spinning (correction "rolling & tumbling") sideways. The ambulance chasers got a nice video of the crash test dummies during the "spin cycle". Of course, real Explorers don't go down the highway sideways at 60 mph before they hit the curb!
I know, bitching about those pesky details again! Why can't I get with the program and learn to love those great visuals? I guess I've just got no future in TV "news"!
