Now that spring has arrived, farmers are heading to the fields to get their crops planted for the year. While farmers and the general public are often in a rush to get places when on the roads, we must remember to practice safe driving procedures throughout this busy time. Everyone will arrive home safe to their families at the end of the day if the public remains vigilant while driving, and the farmers use proper safety signs and lights to signal their traffic intentions. And remember, only pass farm equipment when it’s safe to do so. Driving behind a slow moving vehicle for 2 miles takes the same amount of time as waiting at 2 stop lights in the city. Be safe and enjoy the warm weather!
