Fall driving hazards

It is that time of the year where fall driving hazards need to be considered.
Things to watch out for include farm equipment entering and exiting fields, passing slow-moving farm equipment, limited lighting on trailers and tractors, deer and other critters crossing roads, and earlier sunsets.
The best way to stay safe is to slow down and DO NOT pass farm equipment on the roads. Slow down at intersections with crops blocking your view of cross traffic. Remember that animals become very active at sunset so expect them to be running across the road. Turn on your headlights to give others a chance to see you and, as always, slow down.
Your driving skills are the biggest factor in you making it home safely. Do your part and protect yourself by being aware of driving hazards and risks.
