Important Safety Notice Regarding The 15-Passenger Van:
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 15-passenger vans have a high rollover risk when fully loaded, and should be operated only by experienced drivers. When fully loaded, a large van's center of gravity shifts up and to the back, increasing the risk of rollovers, especially in panic maneuvers by drivers.
The following steps should be taken to reduce rollover risk:
- Passengers should fill front seats first
- Nothing should ever be loaded on the roof
- Passengers should remain seated during travel
- Drive conservatively - Avoid sharp turns, excessive speed and abrupt maneuvers
