Farmers rushing to get crops in while motorists try to get to where they are going are making commutes a little tenser. The planting and harvest seasons can make for crowded roadways as farm equipment makes it out to the fields. According to the Great Plains Center for Agricultural Health, farm equipment crashes are most likely to occur on roads experiencing higher speeds and traffic density. Kewaunee County Sheriff Matt Joski says it is the responsibility of motorists and farmers to make the road safe for each other.
Joski reminds farmers traveling through muddy fields to pick up after themselves if they drag excess dirt onto roadways or risk a citation.
