Agricultural Vehicles

  • Travel after dark only if absolutely necessary. Remember that you need proper lighting for night driving.
  • Keep the SMV reflector emblem clean and replace it when it starts to fade.
  • Make sure your load doesn’t obscure the lights, mirrors and warning signs on your tractor.
  • Your visibility is vital at all times, especially when it is dark or the visibility is poor. Always keep all vehicle lights on and working – turn signals, headlights and taillights, warning lights, flashing amber lights and eye-level signals.
