Reminder By OPP To Be Cautious Around Slow-Moving Vehicles

Regional | by Fadi Didi  

With warm weather here, police warn drivers to be cautious around farm vehicles, horse-drawn buggies.

With the warm weather here, police are reminding you to watch for slow-moving vehicles.

This includes farm vehicles -- which occupy large portions of the roadway -- as well as horse-drawn buggys.

The warning was prompted by two crashes this month in West Region OPP territory, involving vehicles and horse-drawn vehicles.

OPP are reminding drivers of slow-moving vehicles to have them properly marked, and for trailing motorists to slow down when approaching a slow-moving vehicle.

Passing farm machinery or horse-drawn vehicles must be made to the left only.

Operators of farm equipment or horse-drawn vehicles are required to have two white lamps to the front and one red lamp to the rear when operating one half-hour after sunset to one half-hour before sunrise.
