The Dangers of 15-Passenger Vans

  • passenger van Propensity to roll over: If a driver needs to brake hard or turn quickly to avoid something, or in other words, take evasive action — the vans tend to fishtail and roll over.
  • Poor handling: They are much less responsive than minivans and their length and weight makes them difficult to control.
  • Low tire pressure is a hazard: In a normal vehicle, low tire pressure may affect gas mileage and little else, but a 15-passenger van with improperly inflated tires becomes hard to control. If a worn tire blows on the highway it is very likely that even an experienced driver will lose control of the vehicle.
  • No special training required: School buses require training and a class B license. These vans only require a regular class C driving license. This means less experienced drivers, with little knowledge of how to handle a larger vehicle weighed down by a full load, are often put behind the wheel.

State and Federal Laws

Despite all of these dangers, there are over 550,000 15-passenger vans currently on the road. They continue to be involved in serious crashes that result in multiple personal injuries and fatalities. So far, there has been no legislation or rule issued by the federal government to ban these dangerous vehicles.
