I would like to remind everyone that planting season is upon us and 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 of the farmer, 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.
Please use sound judgement when encountering agricultural equipment on the roadways.
Also, please remember to be observant of our schools buses and obey their stop signs.
Sheriff John D Merchant
