Overturning cars

    Lately there seems to be a crazy amount of cars overturning. Is this due to hitting footpaths or objects at speed or are there other reasons.

    Bad drivers. It's as simple as that.

    maybe they were all watching Le Mans '66 [shown recently on Film4] and were trying to replicate some of the fancy manoeuvres they saw 😆

    There was one on my road... narrow suburban Dublin street coming off a 50 kmh road during the day. Not a joy ride. Seemed unusual to me it would flip over.

    I am guessing it is due to lighter cars / higher centre of gravity. But really dunno.

    Are there any statistics to show that more cars are overturning now than before or are we just going on a hunch?

    Putin is a dictator. Putin should face justice at the Hague. All good Russians should work to depose Putin. Russias war in Ukraine is illegal and morally wrong.

    Obvious its climate change…cars and roads are getting warmer causing more bounce,

    Came across overturned cars twice at the same bend in a road

    They must be going way too fast approaching

    The vast majority of people on the road shouldn't be on the road. They treat driving the same as walking, something they just do and not with the attention it requires. Too many people think they're great drivers when they don't even know the laws they're consistently breaking, are oblivious to them, or know and don't care. Too many people buying stupid lifted saloon "crossovers" so they can see better, with their 400k dipped headlights pointed towards the sky so they can see better again, and they wouldn't be able to manage a 70s Mini, let alone something 4 times the size of it.

    The heightening of the "cars" is definitely attributing to it, but it's still down to driver incompetence. There's very rarely a traffic accident, but there's thousands of collisions.
