This is from a co-workers dash cam. I’ll keep the location private but I’ve seen many posts from farmers and groups asking to have patience when following farm equipment as it’s harvest season.. I agree! However it’s a 2 way street! If you want understanding and patience everyone INCLUDING farmers need to respect and be courteous also! This almost cost her, her life and possibly the farmers and not to mention the animals she was transporting.. she was shaken up by this but carried on and thankfully a horrible situation was avoided!

Edit: I should add the stats from this! This is what she wrote as it was recorded on dash cam!

In case you wanna know the actual stats here I went 95kmh to 26kmh in 5 seconds. I started braking as soon as I saw the tractor move knowing it wouldn’t be a good situation. If i hadn’t been able to veer left I wouldve hit the wagon at 50-60kmh. I’m lucky there was no one coming the other way so I was able to do that and still narrowly missed the back corner.
