                    Van drivers need to obey all traffic laws and be careful of corners they turn and not to exceed the speed limit.
                    Van drivers take turns being on call from 8a to 8a and have 45 minutes to be at the office for the call. They have to maintain a phone where they can be reached when on call. If the schedule has been made out and there is a day where they cannot work, it is up to them to find their own relief.
                    If the driver feels like the client is not safe in a wheelchair and will not sit safely in a chair, he can refuse to transport and call dispatch and notify them that it is not safe to transport in a wheelchair. The facility then will call dispatch and arrange for ambulance transport.
