I work on an US Army Post and was considering getting a dashcam. There are plenty of signs posted regarding prohibition of radar detectors, use of cell phone while driving (unless its hands free), use of headphones/earbuds while driving/running/walking, etc. However, there is nothing stating no dashcams or cameras (most folks who work on the post have cell phones with cameras that they are permitted to have on their person). When I asked the provost marshal they stated they were not allowed but could not point to any regulation or law (I suspect it is a case of an overzealous cop stating his preference rather than being able to cite something that would stand up in court). I have searched the traffic laws/regulations for military installations and have not found anything that would expressly prohibit the use of a dashcam. So my question is Does anyone know of any federal laws that prohibit use of a dashcam on military installations? Is there anyone here that has a dashcam and also works on/visits a military installation and do you have any issues with having to remove it before driving on the installation?
