Provost Marshal Messaging:
Due to the recent spike of larcenies of government and private property, we highly encourage everyone to remain vigilant in and around the Fort Bragg Community by securing your personal and military property behind locked doors.
Additionally, we recommend that you do not store your TA-50 and high-valued items inside of your vehicles because it promotes criminal targeting. Please make yourselves and your property a harder target.
Due to recent trends of traffic accidents, everyone needs to remain vigilant in regards to defensive driving techniques and reducing excess speeds in and around Fort Bragg, specifically construction zones.
During this time of year, a second factor also plays a role in our highway safety. Fort Bragg deer hunting season began Sept. 1, and runs through Jan. 2, 2018.
During this period, deer will become stressed to human scent and gunfire from hunters in their natural habitat outside of the Fort Bragg cantonment areas and tend to flee those areas.
In addition to November being their breeding season, the deer will migrate into the main cantonment areas and onto roadways.
Historically, the installation will see between 30 to 50 deer strikes by motor vehicles per year, so please stay viligant. These rates normally decline around mid-January.
Driver Improvement Training (DIT) 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 October, 231 Soldiers were cited for DIT-related violations. Currently, 363 DIT-cited drivers have their on-post driving privileges suspended for one year or longer.
Remember to remain vigilant and obey the posted speed limits and traffic control devices on Fort Bragg.
