Base Traffic Court is located in Room 159, Building 60, which is part of the Camp Lejeune Reception Center. Our telephone number is (910) 451-1951. Our hours of operation are 0730-1100 and 1300-1500 daily.
Personnel receiving an Armed Forces Traffic Ticket (DD Form 1408) will be assigned a Court Date by the issuing Military Policeman. You must appear on your assigned Court Date at 0730 or 0900, as indicated on your ticket. If you fail to appear for your ticket, you will face severe repercussions.
Military personnel appearing at Base Traffic Court must be in the uniform of the day and will be accompanied by a command representative (SNCO or officer). Family members and civilian personnel will be in proper attire and should be accompanied by their sponsor.
Driving on base is a privilege, not a right. If you violate the Motor Vehicle and Traffic Regulations (contained in Base Order P5560.2L), you will be held accountable. Also, your driving habits off-base can adversely affect your on-base driving privileges.
Some examples of driving infractions and their consequences are:
|Driving While Impaired (DWI) (On or Off-Base)||Base driving privileges revoked for one (1) year, infraction reported to state licensing authorities|
|Driving while license revoked/suspended||Base driving privileges revoked for two (2) years|
|Careless driving (On or Off-Base)||Base driving privileges suspended for six (6) months|
|Speeding 15 MPH over the posted limit (On or Off-Base)||Base driving privileges suspended for a minimum of ninety (90) days|
|Cell phone use without hands-fee device||Base driving privileges suspended for thirty (30) days|
|Failure to utilize seatbelts (operator or passengers) (includes failure to use approved child safety seats)||Base driving privileges suspended for thirty (30) days|
Should you lose your base driving privileges, you are not allowed to operate any vehicles aboard any Federal installation during your suspension/revocation period. You must have your driving privileges reinstated by Base Traffic Court prior to driving on base again (to include any approaches to the base or housing areas). If you drive on base while your privileges are suspended/revoked, you will lose your privileges for an additional two (2) years and charges will be referred to your command or, if you are a civilian or a family member, to the U. S. Attorney for prosecution in Federal District Court. Reinstatement of base driving privileges will be completed from 1300-1500 only.
We hope you enjoy your tour at Camp Lejeune and please drive safely and responsibly.
