It's Farm Safety Week, y'all!❤️🚜⚠️

As fall harvest ramps up, drivers may notice a seasonal companion on the roadways — farmers moving massive machinery between fields.

To stay safe on the roads, drivers should:

🟡Slow down when they see a piece of agricultural equipment. Most farm equipment is designed to travel at speeds of only 15 to 25 mph.

⚠️Watch for slow-moving vehicle (SMV) signs. These signs are orange triangles and arerequired for vehicles traveling less than 25 mph.

🫱Look for electronic or hand turn signals. Just because a tractor veers right does not mean the operator is pulling over to allow someone to pass. The size of farm equipment often dictates the necessity of wide turns.

🚜Pass farm equipment cautiously. Even when passing safely and legally, machinery may sway.

🛞Keep all tires on the road. Expect equipment operators to do the same. Driving with one set of tires on loose-surface shoulders increases risk of rolling over.

💡Watch for flashing amber lights. This often marks the far right and left of farm equipment. Also watch for reflective tape marking extremities and sides of equipment.

❤️Remember agricultural vehicle operators have a right to drive equipment on the road.
