Sheriff warns drivers about tall vegetation

Posted: Wednesday, July 8th, 2009 at 5:29 am

The average corn height in southeast Iowa is just over four feet, and it’s approaching a level where it can obstruct motorists view. Washington County Sheriff Jerry Dunbar says people traveling in rural areas need to be extra cautious as roadside vegetation continues to get taller. Dunbar says even though many countryside intersections don’t have traffic control signs, it’s still a good idea to treat them as if there was a yield sign. He also says drivers need to be wary of slow moving farm implements such as hay racks and tractor driven mowers.
