Rollover Simulator

The Rollover Simulator simulates a motor vehicle in a rollover crash utilizing dummies that are belted and unbelted. The simulator demonstrates that when seatbelts are used properly, they can save lives. The Rollover Simulator is available free of charge on a limited basis for events that meet certain criteria. The Rollover Simulator is available from the last week of March to October 30th, due to weather conditions, funding guidelines, and adequate staffing levels.
