VIPP Overview
Vehicle Incident Prevention Project (VIPP) Overview
General State Policy: All vehicles in use for state business shall be used legally, courteously and safely. OAR 125-155-0020(1)

VIPP Goal: Statewide initiative to improve state employee driving, prevent vehicle collisions and reduce cost.
Basic Driving Safety Expectations:
  • Driver Selection: All employees (and final job candidates) who drive have a current valid drivers license and acceptable driving record.
  • Incident Analysis: Investigate each collision, citation and citizen complaint and analyze for cause, correction and prevention. 
  • Driver Skills: Drivers can operate assigned equipment and use defensive driving techniques.
V8: Agencies with the most driving exposure who will make the greatest improvement in limiting state vehicle risk through their good polices, practices and management.  Note: V8 agency status is determined each year based upon data in the Annual Vehicle Report.

Criteria (Prior fiscal year):
  • 10 or more incidents (collisions and/or state police citations), and
  • More than 1.5 million miles driven, and
  • An incident rate higher than the state ‘s average or more than $150,000 in incurred loss (property, liability and/or workers compensation).
Vehicle Incident Prevention Program (doc) Provides state agencies with an easy to use reference. This plan will help agencies develop a program with clear direction, uniform expectations and training programs specific to their needs.
