CAYUGA CO., N.Y. — Cornell Cooperative Extension of Cayuga County, the Cayuga County Sheriff’s Office, and Cayuga County Farm Bureau invites the community to a meeting to identify needs for safely sharing the road with Slow-Moving Vehicles (SMVs). The meeting will take place on March 23rd at 5:30pm at the Ward O’Hara Agricultural Museum in Owasco.
County roads and highways are shared by trucks and cars, farm equipment, and in some areas, horse and buggies. As the size of agricultural equipment has increased, there is the increased potential for accidents. Following this meeting, the agencies involved will develop further steps to help reduce the dangers associated with operating SMVs on the roadways. This meeting is especially timely as planting season is just around the corner, and more agricultural equipment will be on the road.
CCE Cayuga is part of the national Cooperative Extension system, a partnership between County, State, and Federal governments that is administered in New York State through Cornell University. Cornell Cooperative Extension puts knowledge to work in pursuit of economic vitality, ecological sustainability, and social well-being. We bring local experience and research-based solutions together, helping Cayuga County families and communities thrive in our rapidly changing world.
