Fall harvest season is underway in Minnesota, and motorists are likely to see large farm equipment on Minnesota roads as crops are transported to markets, grain elevators and processing plants.

Motorists are urged to:

  • Slow down and use caution when approaching farm equipment. Don’t assume the operator can see you.
  • Watch for debris dropped by trucks. It’s safer to brake or drive through debris than to veer into oncoming cars or off the road.

Wait for a safe place to pass.
