Q May family members or friends of municipal employees ride in municipal vehicles?

A Municipal vehicles may only be used for conducting municipal business and may not be used for the personal use of an employee, as such would constitute an unlawful donation. The governing authorities of a municipality may adopt a policy which imposes restrictions on who may ride as a passenger in municipal vehicles, as passengers may be permitted to ride in municipal vehicles when such vehicles are being operated in the exercise of a proper municipal purpose.
