Operation of Utility Vehicle on Campus Sidewalks
As a reminder to the UW-Whitewater community, anyone who is operating a utility vehicle on university sidewalks needs to have a valid Driver’s License and a Utility Vehicle Operator’s License. You can obtain the Utility Vehicle Operator’s License by completing the “Utility Vehicle Training,” which consists of a short video, quiz and a Utility Vehicle Operator Form. A link to this website can be found at http://www.uww.edu/adminaffairs/police/utility-vehicle-training or the UW-Whitewater Police Department website http://www.uww.edu/adminaffairs/police.
The Operator’s License card at the end of the quiz must be printed off and carried with the operator of any utility vehicle while they are operating on the UW-Whitewater campus. The Utility Vehicle Operator Rules must be reviewed annually by all employees who operate utility vehicles and the direct supervisor must keep a copy of the form on file.
All utility vehicles must also be clearly marked in accordance to the Rules of Operation. Just a reminder that the speed limit on sidewalks is 5 mph (speed of brisk walk) and there shall be no reckless driving.
Any violations of the rules of utility vehicles can be reported to Police Services at 262-472-4660 or Risk Management at 262-472-5723. If possible, provide the markings on the utility vehicle to Police Services or Risk Management.
