15-Passenger Van

15-passenger vans are a popular transportation method for scout troops, daycares, religious groups, hotels, nursing homes, and many other organizations in Pennsylvania. Owing to the great capacity of this van, one does not have to break into multiple groups or take numerous trips for any event or outing, but there are some safety issues in its design as well as the handling of the vehicle which pose some serious threats of injury. One of the most important among them is the heightened risk of rollover as a result of occupancy situation and driving habits. There have been a number of recommendations that has been issued by The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in order to reduce such fatal accidents especially when the occupants of the van are not restrained.

Broken bones, traumatic brain injury, lacerations, paraplegia, amputations etc are some of the common injuries that a person can undergo from a 15-passenger van accident, and most of these need long-term recuperation. Since these vans tend to have a shifting center of gravity, it directly impacts the stability and control of the van. Although these vans are built to help commutation, these are not manufactured with the same safety requisitions followed by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration in the case of school buses. School buses should have interior crash padding, reinforced sides to keep the roof from crashing, compartmentalized seating, laminated glass windows etc.

The risk of van accidents is worsened when the driver does not have proper training with respect to the significance of maintaining the tire pressure of the van, the sufficient tire tread before every trip, the perils one can be exposed to upon overloading the van, along with the serious consequences of distracted driving.
