With the goal of keeping both drivers, farmers and others using the public roads safe, Seneca County Farm Bureau with Seneca County Sherriff’s Department along with Cornell Cooperative Extension of Seneca County, Seneca County Soil & Water Conservation District, Seneca County Agriculture Enhancement Board, and Highway Superintendents have launched a SHARE THE ROAD awareness campaign across Seneca County, New York.
TIPS for SHARING THE ROAD with slow moving vehicles:
The motoring public has a responsibility to slow down as soon as any slow moving vehicle - including bicycles - is seen displaying the slow moving vehicle emblem. Also, obey the road markings and do not pass on a double yellow line.
Use Caution. Caution should be used when a farm vehicle is preparing to turn left. Too often motorists incorrectly assume the tractor is stopping on the right-hand side of the road or turning right when the tractor driver is actually swinging wide to be able to line up with a driveway or field access point. The majority of modern tractors have turn signals - so be cautious.
