Caution

Soldiers board a shuttle bus on a busy Fort McCoy street. Motorists encountering Soldiers boarding buses on Fort McCoy are encouraged to use extra precaution and slow down when following, passing or encountering moving or stopped vehicles. Many areas on post that have large Soldier populations also have 20 mph signs posted, which is slower than the normal speed limit of 30 mph on post roads. Sgt. Domenic Modica, Fort McCoy Police Traffic sergeant, said motorists passing buses stopped on the right side of the road and receiving or discharging passengers, must pass at a safe distance to the left of the bus and not turn to the right in front of a motor bus at that intersection, according to Wisconsin State Statutes. Garrison Safety Officer Lt. Col. Randall Eddy said unless a motorist has a specific reason to be in a high-traffic area, such as West 12th Avenue, it is best to avoid those areas.
