Security and traffic regulations
The driver declares to be entitled to lead the declared vehicle and, rather, warned his insurer of his intention to practise the carpooling.
The driver makes a commitment to respect the traffic rules and the people he is responsible for, and to drive with caution.
If the owner of the car lets a passenger drive, he must have verified his capacity to drive (driver licence) and to make sure that the insurance accepts the driving of a third, possibly young driver.
During the coverage of a passenger, driver and passenger have to take usual precautions not to put themselves in danger or put in danger the other road users.
It is not necessary to have a specific insurance to carpool as long as the contribution of the passengers is lower than the cost of the route shared (the driver cannot realize any profit). Carpoolers are insured by the LC insurance (Civil Liability) of the driver who covers the physical and material damages of the passengers. Besides, if it is about a from home to work journey, drivers and passengers are covered under the accident on the way, that is it gives access to the same rights as an occupational accident.
Know that the insurance-related system for from home to work carpooling of common law also covers the reasonable bends made to pick up or deposit passengers. He must be able to be proved whom the driver was on his path(way) of the work and whom he just realized a bend for his passenger. The registration(inscription) on our services(departments) of ride sharing can serve as documentary evidence.

Other insurances can also offer more comfort but are not legally compulsory. The most common is the “family” insurance. As passenger, you can cause for example damage in the vehicle of your driver. In this case, you can involve the family insurance.
Carpoolers make a commitment to hold a correct language and behavior. Obscene, vulgar, violent or offensive words are totally prohibited.
Carpoolers make a commitment to participate in the development of a network of reliable and quality carpooling, in particular by leaving an evaluation on their partner of carpooling.
During a trip, the driver and the passenger(s) have to show their identities in the simple request of one of them. Besides, the driver must be able to prove that he is good in possession of his driving licence and that the vehicle is correctly insured. This information, in particular the validity of the certificate of insurance, is not verified during the registration on Pass Pass Covoiturage.
Carpoolers makes a commitment to respect the journeys on the accepted conditions and to warn the partners of carpooling as soon as possible in case of predictable breach.
Doing some carpooling, it is also sharing a moment with other people. It is not necessarily easy and it can appear as a loss of freedom. If you do not know the habits of other one or others, let the driver strike up a conversation if he wishes because it is its private space and he has to choose the hosting arrangements.
