While the horizontal curves have a duty to protect all types of road vehicles against sliding as well as rollover, the fact that different vehicle types lose their stability for competing criteria makes this task difficult and vital. In relation to the sliding and rollover of a vehicle undergoing centripetal acceleration, this technical note discusses a number of unclear interpretations of some statements seen in reference books and how their better understanding should be. This note has been prepared to observe such benefits as accident investigations, determination of pavement rehabilitation frequencies, and most importantly, ensuring the correct student learning.
