How does the height of the vehicle's center of gravity affect safe handling?

A Trucks with a high center of gravity can roll over at the posted speed limit for a curve.
Explaination
Trucks with a high center of gravity are much more likely to roll over on a curve, even if they are not exceeding the posted or recommended speed limit. When driving such a vehicle on a curve, slow down well below the posted speed limit.
B Trucks with a high center of gravity can stop faster.
C Trucks with a high center of gravity can get stuck on railroad tracks.
