The OPP continue to stress traffic safety and education in their ongoing commitment to making traveling on roadways as safe as possible for all users.
Motorists are reminded to watch for farm vehicles and horse-drawn vehicles displaying a slow-moving vehicle sign.
Be extra cautious by reducing your speed and staying well back from these vehicles. Slow-moving vehicles may only travel up to 40 km/hr so it's important to be alert and patient.
Watch for left turns. Not all farm vehicles have turn signals. Farm vehicles such as combines and tractors are longer and wider and turn at places that may not be well marked.
Pass only when it's safe to do so. Passing a farm vehicle or horse-drawn vehicle should only be made to the left - A horse can be easily spooked if passed on the right or if too close.
