Vehicle and Cart Safety

Many UT employees must drive university-owned vehicles or carts as part of their normal job duties. It is important that staff know the safe routes to take and where to park on campus, policies governing the use of university vehicles, how to report training compliance, how to operate university vehicles safely, and what to do in an accident. This page features all of the information you need in one place.
