It's spring and that mean farmers are heading to the fields to plant their crops. Farmers are taking to the roads with large tractors and planters, too. Illinois Farm Bureau asks motorists and farmers to be alert on these busy, rural roads.
According to the Federal Highway Administration, 6 out of 10 highway deaths across the U.S. occur on roads that it considers rural, and a large percentage of those involve farming equipment. To help reduce the chance of an accident, Illinois Farm Bureau offers tips for both farmers and motorists.
