Risks of a Rollover
Passenger vans are extremely dangerous due to their high center of gravity and their tendency to fish-tail. Studies show that the risk of a rollover increases as the number of passengers in a passenger van increases. When the passenger compartment becomes heavy with passengers, equipment, and luggage, the center of gravity begins to shift higher and towards the back of the van. These stability issues become quite dangerous, especially if there is a need to swerve.
Limited Safety Precautions
You may have been even more vulnerable to injury than in other vehicles due to:
- Lack of structural integrity to protect the main compartment from collapse or disturbance
- Inadequate crash padding to protect passengers from being thrown against solid surfaces
- Lack of laminated side windows to resist shattering and to prevent someone from being ejected from the vehicle
- Lack of emergency exits and traffic-control safety features that are standard on regular school buses
Since passenger vans do not have these certain safety equipment, passengers will obtain various injuries if there is a motor vehicle accident. These injuries include, but are not limited to, whiplash, neck injuries, back injuries, and head injuries.
