Essex County OPP are sending out a reminder to drivers travelling in rural areas to be mindful of farmers who are harvesting their crops at this time of year.

Motorists are urged to use caution and reduce speeds when travelling near farm vehicles and equipment.

OPP say that every year they respond to incidents involving farm vehicles that are struck by impatient or inattentive drivers. There collisions frequently result in injury and/or death.

They also remind drivers, that farm equipment such as tractors, combines and the trailers they tow are very large and require significant room to safely manoeuvre on the roadway.
