Andrew Bishop Another Top Hazard 11/07/2012 @ 10:23am My top hazard is motorists. I spend a lot of time moving between the home lot and fields on public roads. Motorists don't seem to know what hand signals are, and ignore them if they do. Every time I signal a left, at least one car/truck/SUV will pass me. August 30th my smallest tractor was hit by a pickup while I was about to make a left with blinkers on and my arm out signalling the left turn. I'm sure the alcohol smell on him didn't help his judgement any.) Obviously I survived, but it was the wildest ride of my life. I am now working on putting full automotive style brake/hazard/turn signal lights on the tractors (one more to go) and trailer tail lights on the wagons and trailed equipment. Hopefully if the lights the motorists see are what they see on cars, I won't get hit again.
