As parents prepare to head to service academies to drop off their loved ones a word about driving on military installations. The MP's (Military Police), on most installations are vigilant at protecting base personnel and STRICTLY enforce all traffic laws. 1. Speed limits. On most service academies the maximum speed is 25 MPH. I think Air Force Academy is the exception to this as it is spread out more than the other academies. Anticipate speed limits that are much lower to what you are used to seeing. If you are in a housing area the speed limit is usually 15 MPH or less. As a matter of fact, if you are in a housing area you probably made a wrong turn. Please be careful as there are a TON of kids in the housing areas. 2. Full stop at all stop signs. 3. Yield to pedestrians in crosswalks. 4. If passing a formation of Cadets/midshipmen/soldiers etc the speed limit is 10 MPH. Don't make the day more stressful by getting stopped.
