Rule 7.3.1 Accident Report
Any buggy that is involved in any type of accident during any type of practice session at Carnegie Mellon University may not be used in any type of practice session again until that buggy’s sponsoring organization has submitted an accident report to the Safety Chairman, or anyone designated by that Chairman, and had that report approved by the Sweepstakes Chairman or the Safety Chairman. In any case this report must be submitted within 48 hours of the time that the accident occurred. The form to be used for this accident report can be obtained from the Sweepstakes Advisor through the Safety Chairman. Accident reports will not be approved unless the Sweepstakes Chairman or the Safety Chairman consider that the problem that caused the accident has been corrected and that a similar accident is not likely to occur again. The Sweepstakes Chairman or the Safety Chairman may require any buggy that has been involved in an accident to again successfully complete a safety inspection before that buggy is permitted to participate in any future practice session.
