They reported that the sport utility vehicle deaths fell by two-thirds in their latest reporting data. It is also reported that the sport utility vehicles are going to start introducing front-end energy-absorbing structures in the cars which have been already used for many years, apart from the electronic stability control. This will help in reducing the chances of a sport utility vehicle riding over another vehicle in an accident as well as prevent the front seat area from getting affected due to the accident.
