Bicycle and Moped Regulations
Military Police conduct an annual bike registration in case of theft.
All personnel (including dependents, contractors, retirees, etc.) who ride bicycles on an installation must wear an approved (i.e. American National Standards Institute (ANSI) or Snell Memorial Foundation) bicycle helmet. Workers operating bicycles in areas that require the use of ANSI-approved helmets (hard hats) for protection from falling and flying objects are allowed to use those helmets instead of approved bicycle helmets. EXCEPTION: Workers operating bicycles in industrial/flight line areas designated no-hat area due to potential of FOD need not wear the bicycle helmet; operators of three-wheeled bicycles are not required to wear the bicycle helmet.
The bicycle code of the City of Havelock states that "it is unlawful for any person over the age of 18 who resides in the city to operate or use a bicycle upon any sidewalk, street, alley, or any public highway of the city, unless such bicycle has been properly registered." On base is no exception.
On base, parking of bicycles in any location other than bicycle racks is prohibited. All bicycles parked in violation of these regulations will be locked with a police lock. The bicycle owner must respond to PMO Safety within 24 hours of the bicycle being locked, the lock will be removed. If the owner does not respond within 24 hours, the owners lock will be cut and the bicycle impounded when bicycles pose a safety hazard, impede pedestrians, block access, or damage property.
