Drivers of four-wheel-drives are more than three times more likely to die in a rollover crash than those in ordinary passenger cars, new research reveals.
A study by Victoria's peak motoring group, the RACV, shows four-wheel-drives are over-represented in high-speed rollover crashes and deaths, with young drivers aged under 30 most at risk.
The RACV wants Electronic Stability Program (ESP) technology to be standard in four-wheel-drives to curb the death toll.
The report, 4WD Drive Vehicle Crash Involvement Patterns, examined more than 660,000 recent crashes.
Now they just need a electronic device to save the pedestrians and people in normal size cars when they are struck by these Toorak Tractors.
