Take extra care on rural roads during harvest season
The Safer Roads Partnership, Warwickshire Police and West Mercia Police are warning motorists of the dangers that may be present at this time of year as farmers are using the roads more when harvesting and moving their produce.
Agriculture is one of our region's key industries and this time of year is very busy in the farming calendar with many crops requiring harvest and transportation, often within a short window of opportunity in order to ensure consumers can enjoy the produce in prime condition. However, this burst of activity traditionally sees a rise in road collisions, many of which are preventable.
A significant proportion of the collisions involving agricultural vehicles occur on rural roads with 60mph speed limits, and many near turnings into farms. The typical causes of the collisions are poor overtaking manoeuvres and inappropriate speed, with drivers finding themselves unable to stop in time when presented with a slow moving or wide vehicle.
A further hazard is caused by mud and debris being brought onto the roads by tractors and other vehicles that have been working in the fields. In the last three years*, there have been 75 collisions across Warwickshire and West Mercia where mud was recorded as a contributory factor.
Under the Highways Act (1980), farmers and contractors have a legal obligation to ensure their vehicles are cleared of any mud or debris before entering the public highway. Excess mud on the road is a danger to cars, motorbikes and cyclists and can change the way a vehicle handles, causing skidding, especially in wet conditions.
Chief Inspector Adrian Knight, Head of the Force Operations Department, Warwickshire Police and West Mercia Police said: "Every year we face problems with agricultural vehicles leaving large amounts of mud and debris on the roads during the harvest season. While the majority of farmers take steps to ensure they keep the roads clear and safe, not all are as diligent.
 "We would like to remind farmers and contractors of their responsibilities under the Highways Act. We have already taken action against offenders who haven't complied with this legislation and will continue to take a tough stance against anyone who we believe is being reckless and irresponsible."
Anna Higgins, Communications Manager at the Safer Roads Partnership, said: "We appreciate that during this time of year farmers have to increasingly use the region's roads to transport their crops and that this will affect local traffic at times. Although many drivers of agricultural vehicles use the roads in a responsible way, we are reminding them to be aware of the impact they can have and consider other road users while they undertake their work. During busy traffic periods, pull into a lay-by or safe place to allow other vehicles to pass safely, to avoid traffic build-up and prevent unsafe overtaking manoeuvres.
"We would also like to remind general motorists that extra care and patience should be taken during the harvest season when there is a necessity for more agricultural vehicles to be on the roads. While it can be frustrating travelling behind an agricultural vehicle it's not worth getting impatient and putting yourself and other road users at risk with dangerous manoeuvres."

Good afternoon all,

Over the next few weeks, Shropshire CCG is launching patient and public listening workshops focusing on hip and knee replacement surgery in Shropshire and we really need people to take this opportunity to come and have their say. The engagement exercise will inform a board paper which will be considered for decision by the CCG Governing Body in September. Hence running these sessions over the summertime.

 I have attached the press release for your information and to give you a bit more background. I realise that this is a busy time of the year when people are often away on holiday and appreciate that it is also quite short notice so if you can help us get the message out and encourage people to sign up, that would be fantastic. Each event will take place from 6-8pm and will be able to accommodate around 40 people. Anyone interested in attending can book online by clicking the links below.
