ISU Extension and Outreach to Host Iowa DOT Farm Vehicle Regulations Meeting

Written by on October 23, 2013 in News

MT. PLEASANT- Iowa State University Extension and Outreach will be hosting a free Iowa DOT Farm Vehicle Regulations Meeting on November 6th from 6:30-8:30pm at the Henry County Extension office in Mt. Pleasant. This is an opportunity for operators to hear about current Iowa DOT laws effecting farm vehicles. There will be a brief presentation by an IDOT officer, followed by time for attendees to ask questions regarding regulations that apply to farm vehicles on roadways.

“Laws and regulations that effect farm vehicles on roadways are always changing. Keeping up-to-date on the changes can be challenging,” said Darbee Wellman, ISU Extension Agriculturalist for Lee and Henry counties. “We sincerely hope that farm vehicle operators will take advantage of this opportunity to ask questions and get answers directly from the source to avoid a situation in which they are paying fines for not being in compliance with the law. The information presented should help make our roadways safer for everyone.”

RSVPs are requested, to ensure there are enough materials and seating, by November 5th to the Henry County Extension Office (319)385-8126 or email Darbee at dwellman@iastate.edu. You can also RSVP online at www.extension.iastate.edu/lee/dotmeeting.
