Well if you have ever seen a fibreglass bodied car get into an accident you
know that the fibreglass "explodes" upon impact.  It is awesome!  Fibreglass
absorbs a lot of force on impact, but that force is detrimental when the
limits of various fibreglass compounds are exceeded.

But in the event of a rollover with a fibreglass top I'm sure it would make
for an unpleasant death.  Shards of fibreglass shooting in every which
direction, not to mention having your head right there.
