Passenger Safety

Every child from 8 to 16 years old who is not secured in restraint must be secured in the vehicle’s seatbelt, in every sitting position in the vehicle. (Note: Drivley does not provide car seats. You must provide your own. You may review the State of Maryland Child Passenger Safety Program here.)
  • Drivers will comply with all child passenger safety and traffic laws.
  • Drivers will ensure the safety of all passengers by driving responsibly and paying attention to their surroundings on the road.

  • Trips are tracked by management using Real Time GPS tracking software.
