The base speed limit is 30 MPH unless otherwise posted. It is reduced in all housing areas. While driving in parking lots, your speed must be adjusted to ensure safety and never exceed 5 MPH. Driving in school zones is reduced to 15 MPH when children are present or when light is flashing. Pedestrians in crosswalks have the right-of-way. Vehicles must stop until pedestrians have cleared ALL lanes of traffic before proceeding. A good rule of thumb is that their foot is on the curb. Radar Detectors -- Active radar detectors are not allowed on base.
The use of seat belts and child restraint seats are required on base and throughout the state. Children must be in a restraint seat if under 4 years of age or if weight is 50 pounds or less.
Military members are required to wear a helmet and brightly colored clothing when operating a motorcycle both on and off the installation. The 49th Wing Safety Office can be contacted for the latest motorcycle requirements including mandatory courses.
If you have a recreational vehicle (RV) or any kind of trailer, you cannot keep it parked in the housing area for longer than 24 hours. This is in accordance with the HAFB housing pamphlet 32-7, AFI 31-204/HAFB Supplement 1 and HAFBI 34-201. The 24 hour limit allows for loading and unloading before and after use. If you want to keep the RV/trailer on base, it must be stored in the RV parking lot located at 5th Street and Arkansas. Spaces are assigned and controlled by Outdoor Recreation at 575-572-5369/7329. Their office is located in Building 234, 661 Delaware Avenue.

Use of those devices impairs driving and masks or prevents recognition of emergency signals, alarms, announcements, the approach of vehicles, and human speech.
