Rollover ratings for 2006 model sport utility vehicles (SUVs) show a marked improvement over 2005, the U.S. Department of Transportation's National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) announced. The rating results also point to an unprecedented number of SUVs with electronic stability control (ESC) in 2006. Earlier research by NHTSA documented the potential life-saving benefits of ESC, reducing single vehicle crashes by 63 percent for SUVs and 30 percent for passenger cars.
