It’s harvest time: All drivers should watch out for slow-moving farm equipment

Harvest SafetyWith harvest season officially underway, motorists should expect to see more slow-moving farm equipment from Indiana’s 57,700 farming operations on Hoosier roadways. Lt. Governor Eric Holcomb and the Indiana State Department of Agriculture (ISDA), Indiana Department of Homeland Security (IDHS), Indiana State Police (ISP), Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT), as well as the Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV), are teaming up for the Be Alert, Slow Down, Share the Road campaign to bring attention to the need for more safety on Indiana’s rural roads.

"Now that harvest season is underway, Hoosiers can expect to see an increase in slow-moving farm equipment on Indiana roadways,” Lt. Governor Holcomb said. “This harvest season we are asking all motorists to be alert, slow down and share the road with our Hoosier farmers, especially in rural areas. Our goal is to reach every Hoosier with this important safety message in an effort to protect farmers and drivers across the state.”

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, farm equipment vehicles (excluding trucks) were involved in 93 fatal crashes across the U.S. In an effort to be proactive, Indiana’s state agencies have once again partnered together to raise awareness about the importance of rural roadway safety. This announcement also comes during National Farm Safety and Health Week, which is a national effort designed to promote safe and healthy practices on farms and ranches across the country.

“As the tenth largest farming state in the nation, harvest season is a busy time of the year for Indiana,” said Ted McKinney, ISDA Director. “With farmers bringing in this year’s crop, we want to encourage all Hoosiers to be mindful and alert for farm equipment on the roads. By allowing a little extra time for travel, motorists can reach their destinations and farmers can get their work done without incident or injury.”
