September 21st-27th, 2014 National Farm Safety & Health Week
Sharing the Road with Farm Equipment-Tips for Every Motorist when traveling on public roads (from AG Safety S.T.A.T.):
-Farm machinery has a legal right to use public roads just as other motor vehicles.
-Farm machinery can unexpectedly turn onto a public road from a field or driveway.
-Farm machinery travels slower than normal traffic, often at speeds of 25 miles per hour or less.  Automobile drivers must quickly identify farm equipment and slow down immediately to avoid rear end crashes.  
-Farm machinery operators may not be able to see you because the large equipment or a load can block part of their rearward view.  If you can't see the driver, the driver can't see you.  
-Slow moving farm machinery traveling less than 25 miles per hour should display a slow moving vehicle emblem on the back of the equipment.  This is a quickly identifiable sign to other motorists.  
-Machinery that is half on the road and half on the shoulder may suddenly move completely onto the road.  
-Extra-wide farm machinery may take up more than one lane to avoid hitting obstacles such as mailboxes and road signs.
