Harvest Season Means Heavier Traffic

Purdue Extension LogoHarvest season is almost here. This is Farm Safety Week, which is a good time to plan for the coming weeks. Soon you will be sharing the highways and roadways with farm equipment, and your attention to traffic will need to be up. Purdue Extension Agriculture Educator Chad Rushing says there will be a lot to watch out for this season.

He says all operators should be aware of large vehicles on the road. Additionally operators of farm machinery need to be cautious. Rushing adds this is a rural community and farm equipment may be on highways as well as county roads. He says it is important to be patient and to make sure it is safe to pass.
