Road safety

With planting season around the corner, it’s a good time for farmers and other drivers to review some tips on road safety. One of the best things you can do to prepare for a safe planting season is to check that all of your lights and signals are working, and to replace any slow moving vehicle signs that are getting faded. I know a number of people who study rural driving safety, and they tell me that signs, lights, and signals make a huge difference in preventing collisions. The article below by Farm Bureau Financial Services provides a good summary of things to look for as you’re getting ready for spring.
