Golf carts, gators and other utility vehicles are traditionally used to traverse campus common areas quickly and quietly.  These vehicles are used for both transportation services as well as for utility purposes and are of significant value to the University for efficient and economic transportation.  Recognizing that these are moving vehicles, Miami University has established requirements for their safe operation.

Accidents involving golf carts are reported every year. Because Miami University has a genuine interest in preventing accidents and providing a safe campus environment, supervisors and employees are required to abide by the golf cart and gator safety measures.

Training documentation may be audited periodically by the Office of the Senior Vice President for Finance and Business Services and must be made available to the office following the reporting of an accident involving a low power or utility vehicle.
