WisDOT Warns of Ag Vehicles on Roadways
Tractors and other farm equipment aren’t an uncommon sight on the roads in our area and Wisconsin’s Department of Transportation is asking drivers to take extra caution as the growing season ramps up. Motorists are urged to slow down, pay attention, and be patient when approaching and passing this type of equipment on the road. WisDOT reminds drivers it is illegal to pass slow moving agricultural vehicles in a no passing zone. Farmers, in turn, should ensure they’re meeting the lighting and marking requirements for the type of equipment they’re operating and are heeding to local road weight restrictions.
