Rendering salute

According to Air Force Instruction 34-1201, military members on foot must salute when a properly marked staff car passes. Parked staff cars with no driver do not require salute. If no placard is present on the government owned vehicle, no salute is required. However, it is courtesy to salute if the military member on foot recognizes the driver. Salutes are never required or requested if the driver is in a personally owned vehicle, regardless if the military member on foot recognizes the driver. (U.S. Air Force photo/Tech. Sgt.
