Are you familiar with these passenger van safety tips?

Driving a passenger van is easier said than done. If you are not familiar with this type of vehicle, if you don't understand what it takes to control it, you could soon find yourself in a bad position.

Tip: Don't drive in close proximity to passenger vans on the highway. Instead, keep your distance as you never know if the driver is going to make a mistake.

There are many common causes of passenger van accidents, including but not limited to:

-- Lack of driver experience

-- Improperly inflated tires

-- Incorrectly loaded cargo

These are all things to keep in mind if you are driving a passenger van. They should also be in back of your mind if you find yourself driving in close proximity to one of these vehicles.

Here are some tips for passenger van safety:

-- Make sure you are trained to drive this type of vehicle.

-- Inspect the vehicle before getting behind the wheel. This includes the tires, as well as the way the cargo is loaded.

-- Make sure the vehicle weight never exceeds the weight rating.

These tips may appear to be common sense, but many people make one or more of these mistakes every time they get behind the wheel of a passenger van.

It can be difficult to drive a passenger van, which is why you often see these vehicles involved in accidents on the highway (and on city streets). If you are driving this type of vehicle or in close proximity to one, there are things you can do to improve your safety.
