Safety Tips for Driving on White Sands Missile Range.
Many destinations on WSMR require extensive travel which can lead to driver complacency and fatigue. When traveling throughout WSMR follow these basic driving tips:
Plan. Plan your route of travel. Perform risk planning based to the risks which could occur or are expected to be encountered. Primary range roads should be used as much as possible to avoid extended and unnecessary travel on unimproved roads. Ensure others are informed on your route of travel and expected arrival, departure, and return time. Check road block information to preclude travel delays and scheduling conflicts. If possible, do not deviate from your planned route of travel.
