Watch For Slow Moving Farm Equipment
With planting season getting under way, Delaware agriculture officials are urging drivers to be on the lookout for slow-moving farm equipment along the state’s roads.
Tractors, combines and planters often travel along the state’s highways this time of the year, moving from field to field or barn to field. And Ag Secretary Ed Kee says farmers are extremely cautious and careful on the roads and motorists should do the same by driving carefully and being alert.
Farmers are strongly encouraged to display a slow-moving vehicle emblem; they’re also required to turn off the road when five or more vehicles are behind their equipment.
