A local women’s group is calling on the MRC Pontiac to put up signs on local highways warning drivers of slow-moving farming vehicles.
Members of the Pontiac County Women’s Institute made a presentation on the topic to the MRC Pontiac Council of Mayors meeting on Nov. 22.
According to a letter penned by the group that was distributed at the meeting, members are concerned about the dangers of combining large agricultural machinery with regular traffic that drives at or above the speed limit on main highways in the area.
“There have been so many tractor accidents, there’s been so much movement of equipment on the highways,” said Elaine Lang, president of the institute, a week after the group made the presentation at the MRC.
