Remind Others to Share the Road with Farmers:

Be Alert. Be Patient. Be Kind.

That’s the message state officials are sending to Vermont drivers this season, as farmers return to the roads with tractors and heavy equipment.

They are sharing the PSA with Vermonters on social media, in an effort to build awareness for rural road safety.
