The University of California Office of the President invites comments on a proposed Presidential Policy BFB-BUS-46 Use of University Vehicles.  The policy is proposed to be revised and includes the following key issues:

•    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. 

If you have any questions or if you wish to comment, please contact, no later than February 1, 2024.
