Workers In The Rear Of Vans
Most vans and goods vehicles are designed for the carriage of goods, not passengers, behind the driver. If you carry workers on improvised seats or unbelted in the back of a van, then you risk breaking more than the law.
In a collision, unbelted passengers can be thrown around with such force that as well as killing themselves they could kill or seriously injure a belted driver or front seat passenger.
