A recent article has highlighted the continuing safety concerns with 15 passenger vans and the tendency of these vans to rollover in collisions. Since 2001, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), has released 8 warning regarding the vans’ tendency to tip over. This risk, it appears, is increased when the vans are carrying more passengers. Even more disturbing, this risk increases even when the vans are not loaded to or beyond capacity. When one of these vans is carrying 10 or more passengers the rollover rate in collisions is three times as great as it is when the van is carrying 5 or fewer passengers.
