Every year, rollover accidents are responsible for nearly 10,000 deaths every year in America. While they seem to happen more with SUVs, the truth is these types of car accidents can happen to any driver if they aren't one hudred percent focused on driving. Rollover crashes can be avoided by driving responsibly and being aware of your surroundings at all time. Avoid distractions that can keep your eyes off the road such as your car stereo or your cell phone. Be aware of posted speed limits along highways and side streets. Especially with summer coming up, there will be a lot of construction going on around Kansas City. Be aware of construction zones and any changes in speed zones. Keep up on your monthly and yearly vehicle maintenance, especially with your tires. Keep them properly inflated and have them inspected often.
