Shumard said with crop planting season is here, drivers need pay attention for farm equipment on roads and drive more carefully.
“If you see a farm implement truck or a tractor hauling whatever it may be, just take your time. Find out what they’re doing first before you make a pass, because you never know what they may do. They may turn left or right. You just have to pay attention,” said Shumard.
