Drivers beware of farm equipment to prevent Jasper auto accidents

April 29, 2010

It’s springtime, and many of us are looking forward to all the pleasures that come with the season of April showers and May flowers. However, spring is also a time when farmers are busy getting their crops out, and this means farm equipment may be idling by your car at the next stop light.

According to the Evansville Courier & Press, the Indiana State Police Jasper Post is warning drivers to be weary of farm equipment on the roads in hopes of preventing Jasper auto accidents.

Indiana drivers are especially likely to encounter farm equipment on their commute to work on rural roads, and they should be aware to prevent Jasper auto accidents.

Operators of farm vehicles should avoid traveling during rush hours, and Indiana drivers should allow extra space and pull over when farm equipment is approaching to avoid Jasper auto accidents.
