Base Regulations

Fort Bliss traffic is regulated by AR 190-5 and Center REG 190-5. The post has entry access control gates and vehicle operators are required to slow and prepare to stop when approaching any entry gate. Some traffic congestion is experienced during the traditional rush hours (morning/lunch/evening). The Mexico border is within 10 minutes of Fort Bliss and special insurance and auto documents may be required for entry into the country at the checkpoints. Standard American auto insurance will not cover autos taken into Mexico.

Speed Limits — Speed limits range from 10 MPH in parking areas to 35 MPH on the larger roads.

Vehicle Checks — In addition to the entrance gate checkpoints, the Commanding General has authorized random unannounced vehicle checkpoints which are conducted throughout the post by the Military Police.

Accidents — All traffic accidents on Fort Bliss are required to be reported to the Military Police who will respond to the scene. Call the PMO Operations Office at (915) 568-2115. This office is located at the MP Station, Building 125.

Restricted Areas on Post — Restricted areas vary according to the Commanding General’s posting. Restricted areas are posted, well defined and entrance is permitted by special pass only. Deadly force may be authorized in highly sensitive areas.
