15-passenger vans have received increased attention over the past few years due to their over-involvement in certain types of crashes. Several aspects of these vehicles are examined, including driver selection and training, vehicle inspection, and loading issues. Driver education has traditionally focused on preparing novice drivers to safely operate motor vehicles. While this is a worthy objective, other opportunities to promote safe driving should also be explored. This article also looks at the safe operation of 15-passenger vans, which are among the largest personal vehicles operated on the roadways today.
