Government owned and leased/rented vehicles are for use on government business only. Where not otherwise covered in a collective agreement or the Terms and Conditions of Employment, such use includes reasonable incidental personal use of the vehicle while on travel status (i.e., for meals or a movie, etc.). Other personal use of these vehicles is limited to those activities that have been specifically authorized in advance by the Employer.
An employee/appointee travelling on Employer business in a government owned or leased/rented vehicle may be accompanied by a spouse and/or dependents. Insurance coverage is afforded to family members, equivalent to that available under a standard vehicle insurance policy; however, only the employee/ appointee is permitted to drive the vehicle. Any additional travel expenses incurred by a spouse and/or dependents are the responsibility of the employee.
Other than in emergency, severe weather, or life threatening situations, employees/appointees travelling in government owned or leased/rented vehicles are not to provide transportation to private citizens or off duty employees/appointees.
