Be seen and be safe. Spring is here, and Alberta farmers and ranchers are back in the fields. This means there will be an increase in slow-moving equipment on rural roads, which can create a hazard for farm equipment operators and motorists.
Remember to share the road and be patient. Be aware of slow-moving farm machinery. The typical speed of a piece of farm machinery is 30-40 km/hour. You need to slow down to react!
Let’s keep everyone safe. We’re In It For Life!
