Lawn Mower Safety and Other Issues Discussed on Public Eye

Posted on May 20, 2022

Hardin County Sheriff Keith Everhart urged those operating lawn mowers to pay attention.

He noted that, “A lot of people when they mow their yards, and I do the same thing, turn around out in the road. People mowing their yards…pay attention. A lot of them put their headphones on, and they get in their little groove of mowing and they don’t pay the proper amount of attention.”

He adds that motorists have a responsibility as well, “If you see somebody out mowing, just slow down a little bit. Just watch them a little bit as you’re traveling by.”

Sheriff Everhart noted that there have been several serious crashes involving lawn mowers in Hardin County the last several years.

For the complete discussion, tune in Public Eye Saturday morning at 7:30 and Sunday at noon on WKTN.
