With the spring planting season once again going strong, the Illinois State Police this week reminded motorists to continue to use caution while traveling on rural roadways.
Rick Britton, District 12 commander, reminded motorists to be on the lookout for farmers as they move equipment from field to field.
"They will be traveling at speeds of 25 miles per hour or less," he said. "Drivers should be aware and prepared to slow down when encountering farm vehicles. We want this to be a safe season for motorists and farmers alike."
