Farm Equipment Accidents on Public Roadways

farm equipment accidents

In Tennessee, tractors and other farm equipment are often on public roadways as they move from field to field or farm to farm. This is especially true in the spring and summer months. Special issues are created when farm equipment is on a public roadway and accidents can happen if appropriate care is not taken by both the farmer and the motoring public.

Some of the more common hazards include:

  • Large farm equipment extending into other lanes;
  • Slow-moving farm equipment;
  • Distracted or unsafe driving by motorists;
  • Improperly secured or hitched attachments or equipment
  • Lack of proper warning signs, flashers, etc. (where required)
  • Poorly maintained equipment (bald tires, inoperable turn signals or tail lights, etc.)
