Farmers have been working hard the last month to get all of their equipment ready for this busy season. Part of getting our equipment ready for the field is also making sure our equipment is ready for the roadway. Make sure that breaks and lights work, and that slow moving vehicle signs are attached.
Be aware and on the look for both large equipment and vehicles on the road. Between tall corn, hills, and dusty roads, everyone needs to be prepared for oncoming traffic. If everyone would use some caution and courtesy during this time of year, we can help reduce accidents.
Because visibility can be limited this time of year, farmers should consider having an escort vehicle to help call attention of farm equipment coming down the road. This helps everyone share the road safely.
I hope everyone has a safe and fun fall, as we enjoy everything that makes this season so great! What is your favorite thing about the fall season? Remember to Comment for a Cause!
