Nearly a year ago, the Directorate of Emergency Services began enforcing U.S. Army-Hawaii Regulation 190-5, the Army-Hawaii Traffic Code.

This marked the first codified regulation governing traffic on all Army installations in Hawaii. It consolidated and updated a number of pre-existing policy letters covering traffic-oriented violations on our installations.

This document is the culmination of efforts to ensure that we have a regulation to ensure the safety and good order and discipline on our unique installations.

Over the past year, numerous new personnel have moved to the island, or began work as civilians or contractors. In order to ensure the community is informed, DES wishes to re-emphasis the stipulations covered in this code.

The traffic code applies to all personnel who work on, reside on or visit any Army installation, facility or work site in the state of Hawaii. A majority of the information in this regulation will be transparent to most of us; however, you’re still required to obey the speed limit and other posted signs, park in designated parking stalls and wear your seat belt, etc.


Fines and driving suspension

Offenses while driving, such as seat belt violations, illegal parking and cell phone usage/texting, now have a prescribed fine associated with the offense in addition to a potential prohibition to driving on the installation.

Any offenses of driving with no valid insurance, registration or license will result in a mandatory, 90-day, on-post driving suspension.

Operating a motor vehicle while using a cell phone without a hands-free device, failure to use seat belts or child restraint, or failure to wear the required personal protective equipment while operating a motorcycle will result in a 30-day (1st offense), six-month (2nd offense) or one-year (3rd offense) suspension of on-post driving privileges.

Law enforcement understands that parking or navigating on the installations can be challenging. DES puts forth a great amount of effort to ensure the safety, security and well-being of all personnel on Army installations. It will continue to work diligently to prioritize these efforts based on what the greatest known or perceived threat is to public safety.

Just as you would off-post, we ask that you continue to work within the confines of the traffic rules. Buckle up, put down the phone and prioritize safety over convenience. All of us depend on your efforts to do so.
