  • Traffic stops on military equipment.

    Just curious if you guys have ever made any traffic stops on military equipment or how would it work if say someone was speeding on post how would it be handled?

    I have stopped many military vehicles for traffic violations on the Installation. If the vehicle is a Military or GSA vehicle, they would get a DD Form 1408 (Armed Forces Traffic Ticket). POV's driven by service members, DOD employees usually DD 1408, or DD Form 1805 (United States District Court Violation Notice). DD 1408 = no fine, goes through the Chain-of-Command. DD 1805, = fine, goes to Federal Magistrate. We have issued DD 1805 to civilian visitors for violations of State traffic laws.

    JUst because they are driving a military of GSA vehicle does not give them the right to disregard the traffic laws.
    I don't need probable cause to search your vehicle... AR 190-5.

      funny how things differ from post to post, if it is a tactical vehicle driven by a soldier then it is 1408, if it is driven by a civilian then 1805, any other vehicle is 1805 GSA or not. if it is a tracked vehicle it must be escorted by a lead and follow vehicle, if speeding then lead gets 1408 but al get FI’d and an RBE is done up to give to the command. Thankfully that is a rare thing to happen.
      It could be that the purpose of your life is only to serve as a warning to others.

          Roads that military equipment travel on are usually not the same roads that civilian traffic drive on. Most large installations have several, like around 5 rush hours a day. If you wanted, you could sit there and run traffic all day long and not even make a dent in the population.

            Tracked vehicles-lol If any kind of military tracked vehicle did some kind of violation in front of me I'd have to let that one go. Remember most tracked vehicles can make crown vics turn into pancakes.

              Man, don't remind me about that! I remember when I was there '94-'96, the MP's used to run radar out of the hummer with the blue light on top. I always thought that was the funniest thing in the world because being a young soldier, I saw no purpose in going 25mph on a tank trail.

              I guess they caught a few, but they would've had to go way off in the wood line to come get me

                I remember them being on the tank trails at Grafenwoehr and Hohenfels when I was there 88'-90'. We didn't dare speed on the tank trails, even though the M1's would be flying...

                  I've never run radar against tanks, but as a former armored division MP, I've been blasted by the dust of a thousand tanks driving by on dirt roads as I directed traffic for them!

                  MP points = tank follows!

                  MP = first in & last out!

                    I was running radar on night on hood bored out of my mind and saw 2 M1's running back in from the field radar read 55 so what does a bored spc do he pulls them over. I make the stop the TC pops out of the hatch and looks at me like are you seriously pulling me over. I gave it a good laugh and sent them on there way
