U.S. Army Hawaii Regulation 190-5, the new USARHAW Traffic Code went into effect March 16. The regulation specifies violations for alcohol-related offenses, driving above the posted limit, and driving on a suspended or revoked license, among other violations. Soldiers, civilians, family members, contractors and other personnel who work, reside or visit an Army installation in Hawaii are subject to this new regulation. The regulation gives motorists details about driving, distractions and prohibitions when operating motor vehicles, motorcycles, mopeds or bicycles. The new regulation also increases suspensions for offenses. Service members and civilian sponsors are responsible for ensuring their family members and guests are aware of and understand the regulations.
