It’s approaching the harvesting season in much of the North West Coast, and this means slow moving tractors, crop harvesters and more heavy machinery on our roads particularly in rural areas.
Both Kentish and Latrobe have significant areas of primary production farmland that see high volumes of farm machinery on the roadways.
Farmers play an important role in our community; not only do they grow the food we eat, but chances are they are our friends or family.
So, when you’re in driving in through rural areas, please slow down and always ‘Factor the Tractor!’
