Anti-roll over technology coming to all vehicles

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash. - They are calling it the best safety technology to come along since the seat belt, anti-roll over devices in all new cars.

The federal government wants to put anti-roll over technology in all new cars within the next five years.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said it could save up to 10-thousand lives.

Many cars and SUV's already have electronic stability control, which senses that a driver is about to loss control and applies the brakes to individual wheels which helps prevent the car from rolling over.

Washington State Trooper Jay Cabezuela said, "I think it's a fantastic idea obviously any technology that can protect cars from rolling over and save people's lives is a good idea."

Troopers said many vehicles loss control when there is sand on the road. 

Workers from the local Honda dealership said this could rise the price of the vehicle slightly but said many of the newer cars already come with the anti-roller over technology.
