Lincoln, Nebraska (KMTV)-As the Nebraska planting season begins, authorities warn drivers to pay attention to state road farming tools.
“Our farmers throughout Nebraska do an extraordinary job to feed America year after year,” said Colonel John Boldak of Nebraska Patrol. This is to keep an eye out for ag tools and large equipment that move from field to field. “
Drivers should keep in mind that it is legal for farm equipment to move from field to field on public roads other than the Nebraska Interstate.
“Drivers need to keep in mind that this device often runs at low speeds, and its size can limit the operator’s ability to see other vehicles on the road,” Nebraska said. The patrol is mentioned in the release. “Motorlists must pass through legal transit zones and only when it is safe.”
Patrol, Nebraska, said drivers should pay special attention to roads that may be routes for agricultural machinery.
“It’s important for drivers to avoid distractions and pay attention to the roads due to the potential combination of fast-moving vehicles and slow-moving farm equipment,” said Patrol, Nebraska.
Agricultural producers are also required to comply with traffic safety laws, display warning signs on machines, blink yellow warning lights while traveling, and be alert to vehicles that may try to pass.
