Harvesting is in full effect and you need to aware of and patient with combines and other equipment on the road.

The Illinois Police Department shared the above photo with a very important status,

That combine might not be able to pull over and let you by. Please be patient during harvest.

A few other important facts to remember are obeying the law when traveling through a "No Passing Zone" and the severity of crashing into a combine or other slow-moving farming equipment.

If a car is traveling at 55 mph when 400 hundred feet behind a tractor traveling at 15 mph, it only takes 7 seconds to reach the tractor. A collision at such high speeds can be dangerous. (Illinois.edu)

Be safe out there.
