PETERSBURG, Va. (AP) - Fort Lee is hoping to reduce traffic congestion and wait times at its entrance.

Starting Jan. 5, Fort Lee says it’s allowing uniformed military members, their spouses and others to vouch for occupants in their vehicle as long as those occupants have a valid Department of Defense identification card.

Otherwise, all occupants will be required to show appropriate identification to enter Fort Lee.

Fort Lee says the Trusted Traveler Program is already used at other Army installations.

Fort Lee says it will continue to monitor the base’s safety and security and take aggressive action against possible illegal activities.
