Have you heard about the One Road campaign?
One Road emphasizes the shared responsibility for road safety, with information for operators of farm equipment and awareness for the driving public. The objectives of the campaign are: 1 – to keep farmers, farm workers, and commuters safe when farm vehicles are on roadways with motorists travelling at higher speeds, and 2 – to make sure farmers and farm workers are adhering to safe practices when sharing provincial highways and roadways.
With the fall harvest season upon us, there will be more farm equipment on the roads. Over the next couple of months, you’ll see tv ads, interviews, social media posts and posters about sharing the road safely.
We have several One Road promotional resources to offer you including floor decals, logo bumper stickers, tractor or equipment window stickers with a pre trip checklist, posters and rack cards. If you would like to spread the word abut One Road by giving some of these items to your customers or having them on display in your business, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call Farm Safety NS at 902-893-2293.
There’s only one road, with many reasons to use it. Road safety is a two-way street.
