October law of the month

Motorists will need to share the road with farm equipment
and other slow-moving vehicles during harvest season

Although tractors, combines and other modern agricultural equipment are marvelous machines in farm
fields, they are not designed for speed and agility on roadways. To prevent crashes during this year’s
harvest season, motorists will need to be patient and share the road with slow-moving agricultural

For their own safety, as well the safety of farmers, drivers need to slow down immediately whenever
they see a florescent orange slow-moving vehicle emblem on the rear of a tractor or other piece of
equipment. They also must be alert, focused and patient while trying to pass slow-moving vehicles.

“You should not pass a slow-moving vehicle if you cannot see clearly in front of the vehicle you intend
to pass,” says Wisconsin State Patrol Superintendent Stephen Fitzgerald.

With a recent law change, drivers may pass a slow-moving vehicle in a no passing zone if the slow
moving vehicle is traveling at less than one-half of the posted speed limit and the passing can be
completed safely.

For their part, farmers and other operators of slow-moving vehicles must follow safety regulations.
According to state law, farm tractors, agricultural implements, animal-drawn vehicles or other vehicles
that are normally operated at speeds below 25 miles-per-hour must display a “Slow Moving Vehicle”
(SMV) sign on the left rear of the vehicle. In all cases—even when the vehicle is not a SMV—if it is
operated during hours of darkness, the front and rear of the vehicle must have lights (white to the
front, red to the rear) and the lights must be illuminated. A citation for failure to display a SMV sign or a
violation of the lighting requirement each costs $162.70.

Vehicles traveling slower than normal traffic must stay as far to the right-side of the roadway as
practical. This does not mean slow vehicles must drive on the shoulder of the road although this is
allowed if there is room to do so safely.

“Farmers and others using animal-drawn vehicles on a roadway have the same rights and
responsibilities as operators of motor vehicles,” Superintendent Fitzgerald says. “You should be
careful not to frighten the animals. Do not sound your horn or flash your lights near them, and give the
animals plenty of room when passing.”

Superintendent Fitzgerald adds, “Common sense, caution, and courtesy will go a long way to keeping
our rural roadways safe during the harvest season.”
