Fort Stewart Community
Drive and Bike Carefully
Seatbelt use is mandatory on and off both installations, as is the use of child-restraint seats.
Traffic patterns and speed limits are critical on post in view of the buildup, construction, limited roads and high volume of traffic. The speed limit in housing areas on Fort Stewart is 20 mph and 15 mph at Hunter Army Airfield. The speed limit when approaching or passing a column of troops is 10 mph. Please allow for longer commutes during PT hours.
All personnel, including family members, who ride bicycles on Fort Stewart or Hunter Army Airfield must wear bicycle helmets that meet the standards of the American National Standards Institute or the Snell Memorial Foundation.
All bicycles must be equipped with a functioning light and a rear light reflector visible from a distance of 300 feet during hours of limited visibility. Bicycle riders are required to obey all traffic laws, ride with the flow of traffic, walk their bikes when crossing the street, obey all signs and traffic control devices, and use hand signals. Bicycle paths are to be used if provided.
All personnel riding bicycles must wear high-visibility garments (bright color for daytime and retroreflective during hours of darkness or reduced visibility). Fort Stewart and Georgia laws prohibit children between the ages of 1 and 4 from riding as a passenger on a bicycle unless the child is securely seated in a child passenger seat, bicycle trailer or infant sling and is wearing a helmet.
