While the safety of the equipment itself is imperative to protecting operators and surrounding parties, other drivers, sharing the roads with agriculture equipment is equally important to keeping Texas roadways safe.

In some instances, tractor accidents can be easily prevented with greater attention by drivers and equipment operators or increased attention to the safety of tractors by manufacturers.
