Lawnmower Operators Urged to Pay Attention

Posted on April 21, 2022

More and more people are mowing their yards as the weather improves.

 Hardin County Sheriff Keith Everhart urged those operating a lawn mower to pay attention, “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.
