The Directorate of Emergency Services would like to remind readers of policies regarding vehicle parking across U.S. Army Garrison-Hawaii.

Unless otherwise directed by law enforcement personnel or the direction of an official traffic control device, all vehicles park only in marked parking spaces and adhere to posted time limits.

Failure to adhere to the directives outlined in USAG-HI Policy Memo 14 may result in an issuance of a DD Form 1408 (an Armed Forces Traffic Ticket) or a District Court Violation Notice by the Military Police.

Over the course of one week in May, DES issued 29 tickets for parking violations alone.

USAG-HI Installation Policy Memo14 (Parking on Army Installations on Oahu) describes specific restrictions on parking. Restrictions include, but are not limited to, parking a motor vehicle on a sidewalk, in a crosswalk, in front of a driveway, in areas with no marked vehicle spaces, in any grassed or seeded areas, and within 20 feet of a fire hydrant, crosswalk, bus stop or intersection.

DES would also like to emphasize that parking spaces marked “VISITOR” or “CUSTOMER” are reserved for bona fide visitors or customers of adjacent activities/offices and are not authorized for use by personnel assigned to work in those areas.

Additionally, Island Palms’ community housing parking areas are for residents and their guests, only, as outlined in IPC housing guidelines.

As the memo applies to military organizations, reserved parking spaces are marked properly and cannot constitute more than 20 percent of the parking lot as a whole.

Availability of parking is an ongoing issue across USAG-HI, just as it is on the island of Oahu as a whole. There are approximately 13,400 parking spaces on Schofield Barracks. However, the number of vehicles on the installation at any given time often exceeds that number.

DES is currently conducting a study, with subsequent analysis, on this issue, to assist our community. We ask for your patience and compliance as we work to identify a mitigation strategy for vehicle parking on the garrison.
