With spring seeding underway, the Saskatchewan government is reminding motorists to be cautious and keep an eye out for large farm equipment on the province’s highways.
Officials are also asking drivers to plan ahead and be patient for slow-moving machinery during this busy period for farmers.
“This is a busy time for the agricultural community and it is important to remain patient and pay close attention to avoid any collisions,” Saskatchewan Highways Minister Lori Carr said in a press release.
“Allow yourself some additional time to allow everyone the opportunity to get to their destination safely.”
When moving agricultural equipment on a highway, officials said farmers need to know which situations require a permit as well as restrictions, when escort vehicles are required and designated highways. For more information, visit the government website.
