Issues Under Review

Proposed Revisions to UC Presidential Policy BFB-BUS-46, Use of Vehicles and Driver Selection Policy
October 03, 2018

Dear Colleagues:

A systemwide review is being conducted to consider the proposed revisions to UC Presidential Policy BFB-BUS-46, Use of Vehicles and Driver Selection Policy.

The key issues are described as follows.

  • The inclusion of the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) Negligent Operator Treatment System (NOTS) as a standard for eligibility to drive on behalf of the University.
  • Implementation will apply to all drivers on University business – not solely employees.
  • Establishment of Vehicle Collision Review Committees to review collisions, determine preventability, and promote driver safety awareness.
  • Establishment of guidelines for drivers involved in preventable collisions including training, suspension, and potential revocation of driving privileges.

The review materials include a cover letter from Associate Vice President Cheryl Lloyd, and redlined and clean copies of the proposal.  The document is bookmarked. A link to the review materials is provided in the resources box.

Faculty who wish to comment are welcome to do so. All comments received by November 19, 2018 will be included in the review materials for Senate Council consideration.

Robert Horwitz,
Academic Senate, San Diego Division
