Sadly, the majority of these traffic collisions are caused by the negligent actions of drivers. Negligent driving has become a serious and problematic issue in the United States throughout the past decade and comes in many different forms. Most often, drivers are operating their vehicles while distracted, intoxicated, speeding, or fatigued. The alarming statistic of 685 reported fatalities in 2017 in Mississippi outlines the severity of the situation. Among the numerous types of traffic collisions, rollovers stand out as particularly devastating. 

In one recent year, more than 2% of auto accidents were categorized as rollovers. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is vital to consider that rollover accidents often end in severe injuries or even death.
