Producers who manage farms, regardless the size of the operation, travel rural roads with their equipment. They (and their family members) also travel those roads in their motor vehicles, as do members of the spreading urban community, and visitors to the countryside.
Farm equipment is more often on the road during harvest season. Take time each year to review the rules for sharing the road safely, whether you’re a motorist or equipment operator.
“It’s Preventable!” cards provide tips for sharing the road. One side has safety tips for motorists, and the other has tips for those driving farm equipment.
Contact Ralph Altmaier at 319-335-4229 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on how to receive these cards. Also, the Governor’s Traffic Safety Bureau in Des Moines will send them to you: call 515-725-6123.
