Rollovers are among the most dangerous types of vehicle crashes because of the high incidence of occupant ejection and head injuries.
In 2002, 8,768 of the 10,666 occupant deaths from rollover crashes occurred in single-vehicle rollover crashes.
Rollover crashes are the leading cause of fatalities in SUVs, whereas frontal collisions are the leading cause of death for passenger cars.

 Safercar.gov - Rollover
In fact, certain five-star vehicles, such as sports cars, may have a higher number of rollovers per 100 registered vehicles than certain three-star vehicles, such as minivans, due to the aggressive way in which the vehicle is driven and/or the age and skill of the driver.
The Static Stability Factor (SSF) is specifically designed to measure this more common type of rollover and thus plays a significantly larger role in a vehicle's star rating (for model years 2004 and later) than the results of the dynamic maneuvering test.
The tip-up/no tip-up results are then used with the SSF measurement as inputs in a statistical model that estimates the vehicle's overall risk of rollover in a single-vehicle crash.

 Rollover - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Rollover is a type of vehicle accident, where a vehicle turns over on its side or roof.
All cars are susceptible to rollovers to various extents.
After the rollover the vehicle may end up lying on the side or on the roof, often blocking the doors and complicating the escape for the passengers.

 Rollover Information and Prevention
CU believes the severity of rollover accidents, the rapid rise in popularity of SUVs, and the fact that SUVs generally have a significantly higher propensity to roll over than do sedans, underscore the need for an accurate rollover ratings system, accessible by consumers on how a vehicle performs in a rollover test procedure.
Rollover stands out as a category of highway fatality because the number of rollovers has increased, while the total number of highway fatalities has remained stable over the past decade.
Starting with the 2004 model year, the rollover risk predictions will be based both on the vehicle's static stability factor and its performance in the dynamic test.

 Dynamic Rollover
This angle--often referred to as the dynamic rollover angle--is considered that angle-of-bank beyond which the pilot's control authority can't arrest the angular velocity that develops laterally about a pivot point such as a skid or tire.
Fundamentally, this action allows the weight of the aircraft to act against the rolling motion and is beneficial until the helicopter reaches the static rollover angle or the main rotor strikes the ground as shown in Figure 3.
This same discussion on dynamic rollover has direct application to another area of helicopter flight that we are asked to perform as part of our mission – sloped landings.

The 60-day rule also applies to an eligible rollover distribution to a participant in a qualified employer plan, a distribution of qualified employer plan assets to a spouse beneficiary after a plan participant dies, and a distribution to a current or former spouse due to divorce.
The most common causes of a failed rollover were a financial organization or a tax or legal professional providing incorrect information on the rollover rules or mishandling the distributed funds.
The intent of the rollover rules is to promote and protect the portability of retirement assets, not to be loopholes for personal use of tax-deferred assets.

 New roll-over ratings released - Feb. 6, 2004
NHTSA has given vehicle rollover ratings in the past, but those ratings were based on a mathematical comparison of the vehicle's width to its center of gravity, or where its weight is centered.
Narrower vehicles with higher centers of gravity were given lower rollover ratings, based on the idea on the idea that those vehicles should tip over most easily.
While single-vehicle rollover accidents are relatively rare, accounting for just three percent of all U.S. auto accidents in 2001, they are frequently deadly.

 NWE Help: Graphics: Tips: Rollovers
Rollovers add extra images and, therefore, extra bandwidth requirements to your page.
When creating a rollover, the first thing you need to do is select two images: one that will appear initially and one that will replace the first image when the cursor passes over it.
For a rollover to perform its magic, the image must be part of a hyperlink, even if you don't want to link the image to anything (we made the link inactive by designating a pound (#) sign as the address).

 Windows for Shockwave: 'Rollover' Behavior
Attach this behavior to a sprite that you want to act as a rollover sprite, ie, when the mouse enters this sprite, a window appears, (as long as the mouse is not down on mouseEnter and the window to be opened is instantiated) and when the mouse leaves this sprite, the window disappears.
That example shows a relatively improbable use of the "Rollover" behavior: the words "rollover1" and "rollover2" are menu items that open rollover windows.
If you write and attach other behaviors to a sprite to which you've attached the "Rollover" behavior that, for instance, change the image or highlight the text, then the mouseEnter behavior should have the following form to be consistent with the Rollover behavior.
