The 12 passenger van is in some ways, the scourge of the Child Passenger Safety world. These vans often lack head restraints, are often used to improperly transport young children, and are home to a host of creative safety practices due to their age or their occupation.
We’re thrilled to see more laws in more states align closer to best practice.
