Occasionally, wheelchair restraints will become worn, frayed or damaged, creating potential safety issues for our passengers and drivers.

  1. The City of Cripple Creek Maintenance Department will inspect passenger restraints in all vehicles at least once a month for operational safety.
  2. Drivers must exercise due diligence to safeguard restraints from damage (i.e., do not leave restraints on the floor of a vehicle where they may be stepped on or run over by a wheelchair).
  3. Drivers should report any worn, frayed, missing or damaged restraints immediately to the City of Cripple Creek transit manager.
  4. Restraints which are worn, frayed, or damaged will be tested for operational integrity.
  5. Any restraint that does not operate at 100% capacity or is at risk of endangering passenger safety and must be completely replaced.
