Marion County Sheriff’s Office Says Be Patient and Careful During Harvest Season

Harvest has begun for soybeans and soon for corn. 

 

For everyone on the roads, be alert and mindful for equipment and wagons on the roads.  

 

Be especially aware of equipment entering and exiting fields.  

 

Passing large farm equipment is always challenging and should only be done where it is legal and safe to do so.  

 

Many times farmers will pull over and allow traffic to safely pass.  

 

The Marion County Sheriff’s Office recommends that you go over this with your teen drivers.
