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. Hill AFB Supplement to Air Force Instruction 31-204, Air Force Motor Vehicle Supervision and AFI 91-207, The U.S. Air Force Traffic Safety Program, outlines the requirements for all personnel operating a motorcycle on a military installation. The Motorcycle Safety Foundation Course (MSF) on or off base is required in addition to having the proper safety equipment and gear as noted below:
Strict enforcement will be addressed in a three phase plan. The first phase will consist of reiteration of the above requirements with a verbal warning. The second phase will consist of a citation being issued and notification to your commander or staff agency chief. The third and final phase will result in a citation, denied base access and possible revocation of motorcycle operating privileges on Hill AFB. Additionally, all installation gate personnel are aware of the safety requirements and have been instructed to enforce the standard.
If you need any information regarding the safe operation of motorcycles on Hill AFB please contact SSgt Williams or SSgt Bergo with the 75th Security Forces Squadron at Ext. 777-7133 or 775-5321.
