I have never heard of such a thing. I could understand not driving other employees or customers, but not driving at all, that is redic. Especially since you have to be off campus for things, do they provide transportation to those things? I am really not sure if they can really do that legally, just doesnt sound right to me.

Oh gosh that sounds annoying. I also have never heard of anything like that… I did Americorps (but a loooong time ago) and there was no restriction on driving.

Any way to maybe drive to a transportation hub, park for the day and then take transit to where you need to go? Not that I’m advocating breaking the rules or anything… 

How much longer is your program? It might not be worth taking the risk if it’s not for that much longer.

@GoldfishPie:  Oh that would annoy me. How many people are in the program with you? Is there anyway you could carpool with a few other people and split the cost of a cab? Or if it comes to it rent a car and driver for the day and split the cost of that. At least where I live they would probably be the same price.

I’ve never heard of anything like this.  Since you’re not a full-time employee it doesn’t seem like the insurance/liability stuff should affect you.  Is there a waiver or something they can have you sign stating that you won’t hold them responsible if anything should happen?
