Just another example of safety being ignored in NJ. While there is a federally mandated license required for drivers of commercial vehicles as small as Fedex vans and school buses, there are NO requirements at all for someone to drive these large RV's and pull trailers bigger than commercial vehicles. A license to drive a car should be just that. If people want to drive bigger vehicles they should be required to learn the correct way and have to pass a written and driving test to be on the road. There are enough legitimate hazards on the roads without having a whole group of drivers out there who aren't qualified and put their own and other's lives in danger .

Where in the article does it state that the driver of the motorhome caused the accident?

Oh OK , so was the passenger the one who caused the accident instead ? That could be very possible .

Once again..we have a serious issue with an R.V. accident. Questions must be asked....why people are alowed to drive a R.V. with no formal certification on how to drive it.

I know why....it is becasue the R.V. industry does not want any restrictions on thier product.

Yet last month a 72 year of man lost control of his R.V. in Indiana and smashed into 6 cars and simply destroyed the lives of a family.

They lost their daughter who was 4. Why?
