Reminder: Watch Out For Farming Equipment On Illinois Roads
Harvesting is in full effect and you need to aware of and patient with combines and other equipment on the road.
The Illinois Police Department shared the above photo with a very important status,
That combine might not be able to pull over and let you by. Please be patient during harvest.
A few other important facts to remember are obeying the law when traveling through a "No Passing Zone" and the severity of crashing into a combine or other slow-moving farming equipment.
If a car is traveling at 55 mph when 400 hundred feet behind a tractor traveling at 15 mph, it only takes 7 seconds to reach the tractor. A collision at such high speeds can be dangerous. (Illinois.edu)
Be safe out there.
