Statement of Understanding
1. My purpose as a volunteer driver is to provide safe, reliable and friendly
transportation to and from essential services (e.g. medical facilities, social
services, nutrition sites, etc.) for older adults living within the City of Encinitas,
2. I understand that I am required to meet the following minimum standards for
motor vehicle insurance. My personal insurance is the primary liability protection
and must be issued by a company authorized to do business in the state of CA. I
understand that there will be a gap of coverage if my insurance does not reach
the City’s excess policy level.
The following minimum insurance coverage is required by the State of California:
$ 15,000 bodily injury, each person
$ 30,000 bodily injury, each accident
$ 5,000 property damage
3. I will provide proof of coverage of my vehicle insurance and in the event that my
coverage changes or is canceled, I will immediately notify the Senior Center Out
& About Coordinator of such changes or cancellations.
4. I will notify immediately and provide the Senior Center Out & About Coordinator
with a copy of any accident reports, in the event that I am involved in a vehicle
accident or any traffic citation that I may receive while this agreement is valid.
5. I am physically capable of driving my private vehicle for the Out & About
Encinitas Program and will not drive while using any drug that may affect my
driving ability, either prescription or “over the counter.”
6. I agree to keep my vehicle mechanically sound and equipped with seat belts
which I will use and enforce my passengers to use.
7. Any traffic violations and citations will be my responsibility.
8. I understand by participating in the Out & About Program that I do so at my own
free will and assume all risks associated with participation. I myself, and anyone
entitled to act on my behalf, agree to waive and release the City of Encinitas, its
elected officials, officers, agents, employees, and volunteers from any all claims
of liabilities of any kind arising from my participation in the program.
9. I will maintain true and accurate records required by Out & About Encinitas.
10. I will notify the Out & About Encinitas Coordinator at the time I no longer wish to
be involved in this program. Either the Out & About Encinitas Senior Staff, or I,
may terminate this agreement at any time.
