Planting equipment could be rolling as early as this week across the area as the weather seems to be giving producers a chance to finally get in the fields.

 

As the equipment gets rolled out, State Police are reminding motorists to be on the lookout for the heavy machinery and slow down and give them space. Trooper Matt Frizzle says it's important to be cautious if you are going to pass them on country roads.

 

 

Trooper Frizzle also has a message for farmers who will be getting out in full force very soon to plant....

 

 

Trooper Frizzle indicates as planting season kicks into high gear in the next week or two, it will likely run up on the Memorial Day weekend when authorities will be planning details during the holiday.

 

Authorities continue to remind motorists it is the law to get over for emergency vehicles on the side of the road and they remained focused on the safety of their peers across the state.
