Important side issue for this. Since 15 passenger vans are known to be unsafe, allowing them to be used by your organization opens possible risks to the organizational officers, employees, and leaders to litigation, should an accident occur. On August 3, 2004 Ford Motor Company and Enterprise Rent-A-Car Company were sued for this very issue.

Do your forms and procedures provide the proper safeguards?  Do not forget all the recreational vehicles people may volunteer to provide for your activities. This is too often over-looked today, causing the organization many issues.
