North Dakota motorists urged to be cautious during harvest

BISMARCK, N.D. — The fall harvest is underway in North Dakota, and the state Transportation Department is urging motorists to share the road with farm equipment.

Safety Division Director Karin Mongeon says motorists should use caution, especially on rural, two-lane roads.

Mongeon says most crashes with large, slow-moving agricultural equipment are due to inattention, speeding and unsafe passing.

Last year there were 16 crashes in North Dakota involving farm equipment and one fatality.
