The public safety office has updated their policies for student drivers who operate University owned vehicles or privately owned vehicles on University sponsored activities or business, according to Gerald Gregg, public safety. Please advise all student drivers to check the policies in order to assure that they are in compliance.
A complete listing of University policies for student drivers is available on the web at http://tinyurl.com/atl4dgu. The list includes all policies for pre-trip preparation (trip itineraries, “final participants” list, safe driving course completion); driver requirements (valid driver’s license, good driving record/authorization); safety criteria and use restrictions (seatbelt use, no texting or cell phone use, observation of speed limits and other laws, time restrictions, etc.); and reporting of accidents or damage.
The next student driver safety training course will be on Monday, February 25, at 12:30 p.m., in Shiley Hall room 319. Courses last approximately one hour.
The proper utilization of University-owned vehicles and the safe operation of privately owned vehicles on University sponsored activities or business can save lives, prevent injuries, minimize University transportation costs, and reduce liability. For more information contact public safety at 7161.
