Safety:

Failure to comply with the chauffeur's instructions may result in the offending passenger being expelled from the vehicle or the reservation may be cancelled by the chauffeur, at the chauffeur's discretion.

Seat Belt Usage/Child restraint laws:

My Chauffeur complies with Oregon State Law regarding the use of seat belts and child restraints.

The following are general descriptions of Oregon's safety belt and child restraint laws. Specific wording of statutory requirements can be found HERE.

ADULT BELT LAW

Oregon law requires that all motor vehicle operators and passengers be properly secured with a safety belt or safety harness, unless all safety-belt equipped seating positions are occupied by other persons. This applies to passenger cars, pick up trucks, motorhomes, and fee-based people transport carrying fifteen or fewer persons. Limited exemptions are allowed under ORS 811.215. Vehicle owners are required to maintain belt systems in working order.

CHILD RESTRAINT LAW

Child passengers must be restrained in approved child safety seats until they weigh forty pounds or reach the upper weight limit for the car seat in use. Infants must ride rear-facing until they reach both one year of age AND twenty pounds.

BOOSTER SEAT LAW

Children over forty pounds or who have reached the upper weight limit for their forward-facing car seat must use boosters to 4'9" tall or age eight and the adult belt fits correctly.

CHANGE TO CHILD SEAT LAW effective January 2012:  Current law requires children to move from a child seat to a booster after forty pounds. House Bill 3590 signed by Governor 6/9/2011 will allow continued use of child seats up to the highest weight limit allowed by the seat manufacturer, as an alternative to boosters, for children over forty pounds but under age eight or less than 4'9" tall.

COMMERCIAL VEHICLES

Oregon's safety belt law requires occupants of privately-owned commercial vehicles transporting 15 or fewer persons to use safety restraints including occupants of shuttles, taxis, limousines and vans.  Among these types of vehicles, taxi cab drivers and vehicles originally manufactured without seatbelts are the only occupants excepted from this rule.

The law specifies that drivers of these vehicles are not responsible for ensuring that any of the passengers buckle up. Passengers over 16 years of age are responsible for securing their own safety belt and also for ensuring that any child accompanying them is properly restrained.

16 PASSENGER BUS

Does your bus have seat belts?

No, Oregon law states that vehicles (15 passenger and larger) are not required to have seat belts.

Do I need a car seat for my child?

No, Oregon law states that vehicles (15 passenger and larger) are not required to use child restraints.

What if I want to use a car seat?

You may bring a car seat with you for your child but our bus is not equipped with any restraint system to secure it to the seat.

NATIONAL "BEST PRACTICE" RECOMMENDATIONS

BELT OR BOOSTER?

Belt fit can vary greatly from one vehicle to another and one child to another. If your child meets Oregon's legal requirements for moving from a booster seat to safety belt but you still have doubts about whether your child fits in the belt in your particular vehicle, then the following simple test can help. Place your child in the vehicle without a booster seat and then ask these questions. Until you can answer YES to all of the questions, your child should stay in a booster seat.

1. Can the child sit all the way back against the vehicle seat?
2. Do the child's knees bend comfortably at the edge of the seat?
3. Does the shoulder belt cross the shoulder between the neck and arm?
4. Is the lap belt as low as possible, touching the thighs?
5. Can the child stay comfortably seated like this for the whole trip?  

MEDICAL EXEMPTIONS

ORS 811.220 The Director of Transportation shall issue a certificate of exemption under ORS 811.215 for any person on whose behalf a statement signed by a physician is presented to the Department of Transportation. For a physician's statement to qualify under this section, the physician giving the statement must set forth reasons in the statement why the use of a child safety seat system, or safety belt or safety harness by the person would be impractical or harmful to the person by reason of physician condition, medical problem or body size.

A safety restraint exemption cannot be issued for commercial drivers per Federal Code 392-16.

Faxes can not be accepted. Please send in ORIGINAL copies only.

Drivers are limited to: a) 15 consecutive hours on duty in any one day (including ½ hour driver preparation; and b) of this 15 hours, a maximum of 10 hours may be actual driving hours. If your itinerary requires the use of more than one driver, either the price of the charter will be adjusted or the itinerary must be changed to allow for only one driver. Upon reaching your destination, if the drivers’ total on-duty hours have used, the driver must have a minimum of 8 hours off-duty. The Customer is responsible for the driver(s) overnight room accommodations, unless you and the Company have agreed in advance that the Company will provide the driver’s room and bill you for the charges.
