UNDATED – This season MnDOT warns you to keep your eyes open to farm equipment on Minnesota Highways.

With the increase of farm equipment on Minnesota roads, The Minnesota Department of Transportation is urging motorists to exercise caution this fall.

Two recent crashes, including one fatal crash involving farm equipment have already been reported.

State traffic engineer Sue Groth says, “Motorists need to be prepared to encounter slow-moving farm vehicles, especially on rural, two-lane roads.”

In 2008 through 2010 the Department of Public Safety reported 433 traffic crashes, resulting in 15 fatalities and 218 injuries.

When approaching farm equipment, motorists should slow down and use extreme caution.
