Oreganization Provides SMV Replacement Decals to Members
Gerry Kopping, Cook County Farm Bureau Vice President, snapped a photo through the window of his truck of a newly replaced Slow Moving Vehicle (SMV) emblem display properly on the back of his tractor. The SMV sign is a reflective orange triangle bordered with red that warns other road users that the vehicle displaying the sign is traveling slower than the normal speed of traffic.
Cook County Farm Bureau voting members were offered SMV replacement decals that were funded in a part of a farm safety grant provided by the Illinois Farm Bureau and Country Financial. The office does have a few remaining replacement decals available first come, first served for members interested. Contact the Cook County Farm Bureau at 708-354-3276.
The Cook County Farm Bureau reminds homeowners and businesses that the sign should not be used to mark mailboxes and driveways. Improper and illegal use of the SMV can cause confusion to motorists and create a dangerous situation.
