Provost Marshal Messaging:
The Office of the Provost Marshal would like to take this opportunity once again to ask the Fort Bragg Community to take extra caution while operating their motor vehicles on Fort Bragg roadways and in parking areas. The Law Enforcement Center responds to seven to 10 traffic collisions daily in fair weather and 14 to 20 during inclement weather.
Primary causes for roadway collisions are distracted driving, use of cell phones and aggressive driving, as well as speeding in conjunction with following too close, which limits reaction time for braking. The majority of parking area collisions are due to improper backing where the driver does not ensure there is proper clearance to back safely from a parking space. Adherence to good vehicle operating practices will help prevent a collision. Please drive defensively and safely.
Driver Improvement Training Initiative:
In accordance with the Garrison Commander’s directive, dated Sept. 1, 2016, all drivers cited for the following will be enrolled in DIT:
Speed in excess of 15 miles per hour
Traffic accident resulting in an injury or tow
Failure to obey a traffic control device (including individuals directing traffic)
In June, 225 Soldiers received DIT citations. Remember to remain vigilant and obey the posted speed limits on Fort Bragg.
