Farm Safety Awareness Week runs today through September 26th, and Marion County drivers need to be slow and cautious on the roadways. That’s according to Dale Miller, Marion County ISU Extension Education Director. He says farm equipment travels much slower than cars, and drivers should be patient, since the farmer may not be able to move over to allow you to pass. Miller also says farmers need to be aware of motorists as they move their vehicles in and out of the fields.
