Restrictions on Use of 15-Passenger Vans


The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration has issued repeated rollover warnings to users of 15-passenger vans. NASA policy prohibits carrying more than 9 people including the driver in 15-passenger vans. NASA policy also requires drivers of 15-passenger vans to be experienced drivers with valid Commercial Driverís Licenses. Procurement and use of these vehicles is highly discouraged. See http://www.nhtsa.dot.gov/cars/problems/studies/15passcustomer-advisory.htm.

Warning: Where used, safety recommendations on 15-passenger vans must be strictly adhered to, including ensuring vans are only operated by trained and experienced drivers, including a review and understanding of the safety advisory.
