Delaware Ag Safety

Do you recognize this symbol?

It is not simply a reflector- it is a warning to SLOW DOWN!

SMV stands for slow-moving-vehicle. This sign must be displayed on all farm equipment designed to operate at speeds 25 mph or less when traveling on the road.

When you see an SMV sign

  1. Watch for hand signals, turn signals or other signs that indicate the slow-moving-vehicle is preparing to turn.
  2. Look for nearby driveways and field entrances that farm equipment operators may plan to use
    Slow down and pass with caution!
  3. If you are driving 55 mph and come up on a tractor moving 15 mph, it only takes 5 seconds to close a gap the length of a football field between you and a tractor.
Look for these yellow signs when driving down rural roads during planting and harvest season! They will let you know there is farm equipment near by!

Thanks to our wonderful sponsors over the past three years, we have been able to educate over 175 farmers in Delaware on the aspects of farm safety!
