Darren Simons, Staff Sargent Of Carlyle RCMP states, "We'd just like to remind everyone it's harvest season, the cognizant that there's going to be combines, tractors driving on the highways and especially now the roads are very dusty."
"We've had a couple collisions in the last week where people were driving in dust and collided with people in front. So take your time, be aware of the dust with all the smoke as well there is limited visibility to stay safe on the roadways and the highways."
"People need to realize you have to slow down once you are on gravel roads because if you're in the dust you don't know if the care ahead of you is going slower, stopping or turning. Find a way to travel safely if you have to pull over till the dust is gone do that."
Always be cautious when passing farm equipment on highways and back roads.
