Fort Campbell: Safe riding practices save lives, support readiness

 

Fort Campbell KY - 101st Airborne DivisionFort Campbell, KY – As Motorcycle Safety Month comes to an end with Memorial Day weekend, the team at Fort Campbell Traffic Management and Collision Investigations, Installation Provost Marshal Office, wants to emphasize the importance of safe riding and driving practices among Soldiers, Army civilians and Family members as they enjoy the start of summer.

Motorcycle safety is just as important to automobile drivers as it is to motorcycle riders because everyone shares the same road. Adherence to proper road safety also protects Army readiness, said Lt. Nicholas Pietila, traffic supervisor.

“Our goal is to modify driver behavior, because if you have a collision where you become injured you are no longer combat-effective and that speaks to readiness of the force,” Pietila said. “It is a direct impact on readiness. If you are not fit for the fight either somebody else has to pick up that slack or it does not get done.”
