Cart Safety

It is important if you are using a cart on campus to remember that this is a pedestrian campus and that pedestrians have the right of way.

Please drive cautiously and safely while on campus streets and sidewalks.

Each university department that operates powered carts must:

  2. Provide all drivers with adequate training prior to operation
  3. Ensure each cart is mechanically safe to operate

  2. Training Program:
    • Non-Employees - Go through CART SAFETY GUIDELINES with a supervisor.  Documentation of training completion must be maintained by department.
  1. Powered Cart Maintenance
    • Do not operate a cart that is not properly equipped or defective.
    • All carts must receive an annual safety inspection at the Ag Operations shop.
    • A written summary of inspection results will be kept in department files.
