Slow mov­ing agri­cul­tural equip­ment to share the road

The McLeod River Post - - Family, Farm & Garden -

County res­i­dents are urged to be con­sid­er­ate of farm­ers whose farm ve­hi­cles rely on lo­cal road­ways dur­ing the har­vest sea­son.

Yel­low­head County would like to re­mind res­i­dents that lo­cal farm­ers are cur­rently har­vest­ing their crops be­fore the start of the win­ter sea­son. This means that a high vol­ume of farm equip­ment will be trav­el­ling along our lo­cal road­ways.

We ask that you please be cau­tious when you see farm equip­ment on the road and re­spect that large equip­ment is dif­fi­cult to ma­neu­ver, has lim­ited vis­i­bil­ity and blind spots, and can­not travel at fast speeds.

Our hard work­ing lo­cal pro­duc­ers have a lim­ited win­dow to get their work com­pleted— we thank you for your pa­tience and at­ten­tion when shar­ing the road with them. Re­mem­ber: we all share the re­spon­si­bil­ity of keep­ing our road­ways safe.
