The safety of all personnel traveling on Hill Air Force Base roadways is paramount, whether it's in a car, truck or on a motorcycle. The risk of operating a motorcycle without proper safety equipment can prove deadly. Recent tragic events across the Air Force and within the local community suggest motorcycle safety standards need additional emphasis. Accordingly, security forces will take action to ensure the safe operation of motorcycles while on Hill AFB. All riders should be aware of the requirements set in place to prevent safety mishaps.
Winter is the most difficult driving season. Not only do you have snow and ice to deal with, but there are fewer hours of daylight as well.
As winter weather arrives, make sure your vehicle is in good condition. Make sure you have good snow tires and put them on early to avoid preventable accidents -- you don't want to get caught without them in the first snowfall. Never combine radial and non-radial tires on the same vehicle. On front-wheel drive cars, it's best to put snow tires or "all-season" tires on all four wheels, not just the front.
