Farming activities are ramping up this spring with planting, crop spraying and haying going full tilt. With this increased activity, farm machinery is traveling county and state roads. This machinery is slower than normal traffic and there should be extra caution when approaching this machinery from behind. Even with warning flashers and caution decals on the machinery an auto driver can be on a slower moving farm implement before they know it and can’t brake soon enough causing an accident and possible injury to the driver of the implement or the automobile driver or both. There have been injuries and even a death from a farm equipment and auto/truck accident in our county in the last few years. Please take extra caution when approaching or traveling behind any farm equipment when driving on our county and state roads. We all want to go home safely to our families.
