Conoisseurs (ahem) of YouTube dashcam crash video complications will tell you the number of tip-overs/rolls in these videos is increasing with the number of CUV/SUV's on the road. Some of them seem to tip over in what would otherwise be a pretty minor situation for a normal hatchback/sedan.

It'd be pretty easy to put together a shocking (to those who bought into the safety misperception) CUV/SUV roll over compilation.
