I hate watching rollovers, especially when the person is not being a yahoo. But you can learn a lot by watching the physics involved in videos like this one. The people not wearing seatbelts are an example of the power of centrifugal force. Even in low speed rolls people can get ejected due to centrifugal force. It is very easy to be severely injured or killed by being crushed by a rolling vehicle when a person is ejected or partially ejected. So as Mike implied, wear your seatbelt and take responsibility for your passengers and make sure that they wear their seatbelts too! Vehicles can sometimes roll in seemingly innocuous situations so always be prepared and belted in.

Besides most of these events resulting from stupidity, it also demonstrates how easily you can completely ruin your day & vehicle by not enough forethought of assessing the situation. I don't believe anyone associated with the club takes chances like these, even Jeff!

A lot of lucky people! More gas isn't always the answer. And always know what's on the other side of the hill. And...well, don't be an idiot!

Makes me want to get my roll cage and battery kill switch done sooner.
