Motorists Asked To Slow Down During Harvest

Whether it’s sugarbeets, apples, grapes or one of many other commodities across the region, the Pacific Northwest remains very busy and active this harvest season. And with that activity comes additional truck and implement traffic on country roads and interstates.

“Just wish our growers the best of luck and a safe harvest this October,” said Brad Griff, the Executive Director of the Idaho Sugarbeet Growers Association. “There will be a lot of truck traffic on the roads, so if you’re near these Ag communities slowdown, look twice for trucks coming down the road and we just wish for the best for our growers.”

A friendly reminder to the non-Ag community, truck and implements are legally allowed to use roadways across the state, so watch for slow moving vehicles and please pass only when it is safe to do so.
