THE ILLINOIS DEPARTMENT OF LABOR IS URGING DRIVERS TO BE CAREFUL DURING THE BUSY SPRING PLANTING SEASON. 

 

THE BEST THING YOU CAN DO IS SLOW DOWN AND HAVE PATIENCE AS LARGE FARM EQUIMENT MOVES IN AND OUT OF FIELDS AND DOWN THE ROAD SAYS THE DEPARTMENT'S HAP HILEMAN. HE NOTES THAT MANY ACCIDENTS OCCUR WHEN A DRIVER TRIES TO PASS A BIG PIECE OF EQUIPMENT, NOT REALIZING THE FARMER IS MAKING A LEFT HAND TURN.

 

 

HILEMAN STRESSES THAT FARMERS ALSO NEED TO DO THEIR PART, BY MAKING SURE THEIR EQUIPMENT IS AS SAFE AS POSSIBLE.

 

 

DRIVERS SHOULD ALSO REMEMBER THAT FARMERS HAVE LIMITIED VISIBILITY IN THE REAR. THOSE DRIVING FARM EQUIPMENT NEED TO DO THEIR PART AS WELL, HAVING "SLOW MOVING VEHICLE" SIGNAGE POSTED AND THE CORRECT LIGHTS.
