Farm Transport Safety

 

3 simple steps for Farm Transport Safety. Although the dangers are well understood, 13% of farm-related fatalities are traffic related.

 

 

1. Leave space between your car and farm equipment 

A car can travel the distance of a football field in 5 seconds - give yourself enough time to stop.

Note: large machines often need to veer right in order to turn left

2. Be visible - Maintain your equipment

Look for the bright orange triangles signifying a slow moving vehicle - make sure your lights are on and you are on and you are visible to the vehicles around you.

3. Be patient

Everyone wants to get to Point B safely - please show respect and compassion to your neighbours and fellow farmers. If you live in places where farm equipment willl be moved, give yourself extra time to reach your destination. This is one of the most stressful times of the year - they want to get off the road as fast and as safely as they can.
