• Improperly loaded trailer. If a load’s weight is not evenly distributed or properly secured, it may shift while traveling and result in a rollover.
  • Speeding. The higher the speed, the more potential for rollovers. Rounding a curve or turn too quickly, a shifting load, or hitting an object on the road is all it takes.
  • Wind. Tractor-trailers are long and broad, making them more susceptible to the effects of wind gusts. High-wind warnings should be heeded.
  • Careless and reckless driving. This includes a driver’s lack of understanding how to drive his/her rig, impatience, or driving under the influence or while sleep-deprived.
  • Improper maintenance. Underinflated tires or a damaged suspension can cause a truck to tip over on sharp curves, steep downhill grades, or uneven road surfaces.
