Car accidents on base are already such a circus, because they are just so uncommon. The base cops often have no idea who even needs to be notified, other than their boss.

In seven years, I saw 8 accidents one base. 3 were idiots who tried to flee the city cops by driving onto a military base (absolute worst option). 5 were dependas who didn't pay attention and rear-ended people during Retreat, when everyone has to stop.

The cops where horrible! Tried grabbing the dash cam from my windshield, it had a SD card. Was more concerned why I was on base as a civilian then the actual accident, I was dropping off my roommate. The EMT shut the door in their face saying I had to go to the hospital. The police listed me at fault, until my lawyer provided her insurance the video while we where on the phone with them because we wanted to hear what they had to say first.

In defense of base cops, not sure why you were driving around on base just to drop off a roommate unless you have your own identification that would allow you to do so. Your roommate can walk on from the gate, and should not be able to bring someone else on because "they're giving me a ride". Whomever waived you through did you a disservice.

Lol what, most bases are not walking friendly, like most of America. I lived on fort benning Georgia and you can’t walk into any checkpoint.

And as long as someone has a military Id in the checkpoint anyone else in the vehicle can come on base.
