Fleet Van Interim Policy
UW System Administration, in response to advice from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, has developed the following interim policy and ordered that campuses implement it effective July 1:

  • Students may not drive 15-passenger vans unless the student is older than 25, meets System driving requirements and completes required training for operating passenger vans.
  • Towing with 15-passenger vans is banned.
  • Car top carriers with 15-passenger vans are banned.
  • There is a block on leasing 15-passenger vans through state and university contracts unless approved by the risk management office.
  • Cargo my be transported in 15-passenger vans if cargo and passengers are restricted in size, weight and number to the manufacturer's suggested capacity.
  • Faculty and staff may drive 15-passenger vans if they meet System driving requirements, complete required training and are at least 25 years old.

     These restrictions likely will be extended to 12-passenger vans. An update will be issued if System Administration takes this step. In rare instances, exceptions to the policy may be allowed. Exceptions must be approved in writing by the chancellor, with the concurrence of the System Risk Office. Requests for exceptions at UW-Eau Claire should be submitted to Andrew Soll, Vice Chancellor for Business and Student Services.
     For more information, contact Ed Brown, 836-3361, Facilities Planning and Management.
