Use extra caution on the road

Pay attention for farm equipment on local roads.

I would like to remind everyone that with warmer weather, farmers are able to start getting in to the fields. With the already busy highways in our county, farm equipment will be more prevalent on all of our roadways.

Use extra caution when driving and allow plenty of space between you and farm equipment. When vehicles are in the blind spots, they may be unable to see you. When approaching hills on country roads, slow down as you approach the top and be ready to pull to the side if you meet farm equipment. Do not over drive your line of sight and stopping distance.

We have already encountered heavy traffic coming through our area, and we will get through this. Just allow some extra time and be patient. Be the very best defensive driver you can be, and the rest will follow.
