Share The Road

Autumn has arrived and many Iowa farmers are already starting the fall harvest. Motorists in rural areas will need to share the roads with large, slow-moving farm equipment for the next several weeks. Franklin County Sheriff Aaron Dodd says he’s already spotted drivers taking big chances when they shouldn’t, like trying to pass tractors on a hill. Dodd says that action puts everyone involved at risk and it could result in a collision — or at least a citation. From 2017 through June 30th, 2022, the Iowa Department of Transportation reports 30 people died in crashes involving farm equipment in the state. (IARN)
