15-Passenger Van Safety

15-Passenger Van Safety

There is growing concern regarding the safety of 15-passenger vans and the injuries and fatalities that can result. Fifteen-passenger vans are more likely to be involved in a single-vehicle rollover crash than any other type of vehicle. Compounding this problem, the rate of safety belt use among occupants of 15-passenger vans is very low compared to those in other types of vehicles, increasing the likelihood of severe injury and fatality. This course reviews the issues specific to passenger vans, such as unique vehicle characteristics, loading cargo/passengers to minimize the risk of rollover, backing safely, proper tire care, and strategies to reduce crash risks.
