HM Cargo Tank Rollover - Safety News

About this Document

You might be surprised to learn that according to a recent study conducted for the U. S. Department of Transportation, only about 7% of cargo tank rollovers occur on exit ramps. Eight times as many rollovers occur on straight roadways, often when a driver “over-corrects” after dropping a wheel off the road surface, or becoming distracted.
