Give the farmers some room to grow

A farmer plants crops in rural Whiteside County on Tuesday. Spring is in the air and farmers are in the fields – and on the roads. With planting season in full swing, the folks who feed the world are plowing and planting, and that means people will need to share the road with more of those massive machines. Drivers are reminded to keep an eye out for slow-moving equipment, be patient, pass only when it’s safe (never on curves or hills), and not underestimate the size of oncoming equipment. More information on vehicle accidents with farm equipment can be found at the University of Illinois Extension Service at shawurl.com/326c, and The National Ag Safety Database at shawurl.com/326a.
